He taught a course about the ethics of Star Trek, a civics class based on the philosophy of President Kennedy, and English classes focused on the novels of Charles Dickens. He was awarded a 24k gold medal in recognition of his service to KHU. He is returning to Halifax in March 2024 and plans to write a memoir of his days as Korea’s first Star Trek professor.
