Hi! My name is James. I am a Freshman here at UAF majoring in political science. My passions are politics, law, and public policy, and I hope to go to law school after I get my bachelor’s degree.

I’m originally from Texas, but I became an Alaska transplant when I was 13 years old when I moved from Dallas to Anchorage. In Anchorage, I attended Chugiak High School, where I participated in student government and was elected my class’s Graduation Speaker (the speech, admittedly, was not great). Here at UAF,  I work to make a positive impact on the campus and serve in a variety of positions held by the Vice President and participate in various clubs across campus. I love helping out the campus and its students in ASUAF and look forward to being a Nanook for years to come.
