Dave Burgener

Dave is a graduate of Communication Studies program at the University of Calgary. He loves to play soccer and guitar, and spend time with friends. He says, "I don't think that peace has to be a big and intimidating idea. It's just learning to share and make the best with what we've got." Dave is planning to do his master's degree, starting in September 2010, in Tokyo, Japan.
