James Emm is a CIEE alumnus and recently graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.S. in Ecology. He has had a passion for the ocean through the entirety of his life, and being a PADI divemaster, has the perfect excuse to be in the environment he loves. He hopes to eventually earn his Ph.D. in ecology and the experiences gained from his time at CIEE Bonaire will help lay the foundation for the achievement of that goal. James loves the outdoors, adventure, and being in nature and has a true passion for conservation. He is very excited about the upcoming semester and all that it has to offer.
