Social Convener-David Hoch

My name is David Hoch, but most people call me Dave. I’m currently in my 3rd year of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, but my 5th year of school. I’m most likely the only person to have enjoyed drawing microscope observations of thin sections. I am an outdoors enthusiast, and love anything to do with the mountains. My favorite season is winter because I’m from Northern BC; I have had winter 9 months a year, so I grew to love it. I’m in charge of organizing the P. S. Warren ski trip for this year, so I hope to see you there. I’m stoked to meet everyone who’s new to P. S. Warren. If you have any inquiries about P. S. Warren, school, skiing, hiking or anything in general you can feel free to email me at dhoch@ualberta.ca .
