James  Moore



First and foremost, Jim loves language. Different languages offer different views on life, and being able to speak to someone in their language opens up a whole new world for everyone. Jim is passionate about language and culture and loves video games, fantasy novels, cooking for friends, and reasonably priced coffee. Jim is a Tuscaloosa native, but moved to Oxford, MS, to earn a BA from the University of Mississippi. Jim is excited to be back in Tuscaloosa, especially for such a great program!
