Next up in Who's Who in Cheongju is the fearless leader of our fair city's football (soccer) team. He's passionate about the community, getting people out and around, and having fun.
This is Brad!
How long have you been in Cheongju? What do you do here?
I have been in Cheongju for two and a half years, and I teach at Daeseong Elementary School. My coworkers are great, and the kids are great. I'm the oldest of four, so working with kids comes naturally. It keeps you on your toes.
What did you do pre-Cheongju, and what brought you here?
Before I came to Cheongju, I worked as a videographer for the soccer team, the Philadelphia Union. I filmed press conferences and interviews. During games, I controlled the Jumbotron, doing instant replay on the screen and the LEDs around the stadium.
After that, I taught for a year in Prague. But in Europe I was living paycheck to paycheck, and I need to push myself. People I met there planted the idea of going to Asia, and now here I am!
What do you do for fun?
I like to hang out with my friends and of course, play football. At one point, I was in a band, but it's disbanded now. I also enjoy going to the movies and studying Korean!
