About Me
San Francisco State University
San Francisco Symphony
English, Italiano
Hey, I'm Alexina!
San Francisco, California, United States · Member since December 2011

I sing with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. My passions are cooking (especially Mediterranean cuisine), biographies, history, visiting museums (have a membership to the SF Fine Arts Museums), and restoring vintage furniture.

Several times a year, I teach English one-on-one through a unique home stay/language immersion program. Examples of former students have been Japanese accountants, a Swiss politician, a German lawyer, an Italian language school director, a Spanish public administrator, a Corsican air traffic controller, and French and Belgian teens prepping for university TOEFL exams. I'm still in touch with many of them; some I've even visited in their homes in France, Italy, and Switzerland.

As a San Francisco native, I also enjoy offering my guest master bedroom to interesting travelers - more than 300 to date - from all over the world. It's a fabulous way to share cultures, and to be an ambassador for the Bay Area.

I'm also an enthusiastic Airbnb guest! I've rented a room in a shared home in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and several apartments in Florence for months at a time in the past two years! My adult son, Andrew, has welcomed and hosted guests in my absence, and has also been an Airbnb guest in Italy.
