Hello all! My name is James and I’m a sophomore at the UW currently double majoring in Marine Biology and Archaeological Sciences. I grew up across the Pacific in the city of Hong Kong, which is an amazing super dense place filled with temples and r historic buildings nestled in between dazzling skyscrapers. The whole place exudes a mishmash of culture which is just intoxicating. This is what really led me down the path of wanting to study the past and study culture which ultimately landed me here at the UW. Moving across the ocean to Seattle has been incredible and provided me with the opportunity to experience and immerse myself in a new cultural environment. Since I have only been here a little over a year my experience is limited to the few classes I’ve taken and an excavation up in Northern Alberta, but I am eager to learn as much as I can in the discipline. While I don’t have any specific interests in archaeology yet I am gravitating towards marine archaeology in South East Asia, but nothing is set in stone yet. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, reading, rock climbing and being by the water.
