In April of 1998, I traveled to Africa for a three-month long African safari - operated by Bukima Adventure Tours - with my friend John Douglas. I have done quite a lot of traveling, but nothing compares to my experiences in Africa. Here is a short montage featuring some of my favorite photos from that trip.
A big thank you to Sophie, my English House student during the summer vacation, for sharing with me footage she collected of scenes from Korean dramas filmed on campus. I added the song which certainly reflects how much I love working at Keimyung. Thank you Sophie!
Last June I took part in the Dokdo Marathon at Jamsil Stadium with my friend Chuck. It really was a fun experience, especially starting and finishing at the Olympic Stadium. Chuck has continued running and recently completed a half marathon. Unfortunately, I hurt my ankle soon after and haven't run much since then.
I created this video as part of a Consumer Behaviour team presentation about product branding and product personality. I really like how this video turned out and I think the music goes incredibly well with the images.
On August 5, 2009, I took a long overdue trip to the U.S. to visit my brother John and spend time with his wonderful family. My mother made the trip over from Australia the same day resulting in a mini family reunion in Washington D.C.
The weekend my nephews visited from Australia was simply wonderful. I've stayed at my sister Liz's place in Sydney on countless occasions over the year, and now I finally had the chance to reciprocate and play the host to Liz, Chris, Tae, and Seong. And what great guests they were and what fun we had!
The last day of the 2007 Summer Keli English Camp. I would have to see that that camp was one of the highlights of my time teaching in Korea. Watching this video for the first time in about two years is quite a moving experience.
Here it is! My tribute to the final series of Battlestar Galactica and the music of Bear McCreary.
I certainly had fun putting this together, but have to admit it almost ended in disaster when my iPod flew out of hand at 3:18. That was not in the script, nor was it improvised; it was simply a frak-up:
I have really fond memories of this song from playing it at my high school's musical variety night way back in 1990. Sadly, that was the end of my professional career because about a year later I developed carpal tunnel syndrom in my right hand and had to stop playing regularly. Carpal tunnel syndrome is an injury due to the repitiative use of muscles and is quite common amongst musicians, particularly pianists and violinists.
