Previous trips to Japan and Korea:
A short video montage about my experiences in South Korea. I intended to collect footage throughout the next year in South Korea and post it online for others to see. At the end of this year I plan to collect this footage together into a single montage that documents my experiences and gives a unique perspective based on my somewhat eccentric interests (see "About Me" below).
I recently entered and WON a chance to be one of the first people with Google Glass. My winning submission (pictured below) explained how I hope to use them in South Korea and around Asia when I move there at the end of this year. I'd love for you to be a part of that experience!
- on my 6th and FINAL year at The University of Texas at Austin; majoring in Asian American Studies but have completed coursework in Video Editing, Audio Engineering, and Robotic Lighting
- love the North Korean people and want the best for them; have been working with Liberty in North Korea on my campus for 5 years now and even took a trip to South Korea to meet North Korean refugees
- recently spent a summer in Japan working with a Christian Tsunami/Earthquake relief organization called CRASH; helped them film and document their work

Risks and challenges
I feel quite confident about this project. It is simple and straightforward and I've made many like it. However, this will be the first on Google Glass!
My biggest concern is getting employment in South Korea, but I am quite confident in this area as well. I am leading classes in English here in America already, have gotten my TEFL 120-hour English Teaching certification, and have worked for 5 years in the education department at my university. I am told by many that there are many jobs for me. The only thing I can think of holding me back is nuclear war!
