Hey, I'm Alice!
Toronto, Ontario, Canada · Member since August 2010

Hmm, a few things about myself...

I work in digital marketing, love food, photography, music, and travel. I've been renting on airbnb for over 2 years and it's been a great experience. I've been living in this unit for over 5 years and it's a great place, sunny, central, clean, convenient, and well-kept.

Favourite travel destination maybe Australia for the amazing food, beautiful beaches, crazy wildlife, and I have a lot of friends that live out there. It is a bit hard to pick favourites as there are things I love about so many places. I spent this past year traveling around Canada and it amazes me, Tofino on the Western Coast of Vancouver Island is stunning, Vancouver always has a special place in my heart, the Rocky Mountains and all the mountain ranges between Alberta and British Columbia are spectacular, and if you visit in the summer I can tell you all about the fresh water beaches in Ontario or all the great neighbourhoods in Toronto. I have yet to see the Northern lights and would like to visit northern Canada some day soon.

Favourite food, probably pizza because you can do so many things with it, a good hawaiian pizza with fresh pineapple is probably one of my favourites. I also love Chinese food, dumplings, noodles, braised pork belly, and just about anything with sichuan peppercorns.

Music, maybe Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix, The National, Florence and the Machine, Foster the People, Jay-Z, Kanye, Pearl Jam, Muse, Sara Bareilles, and many others including classical, jazz, and many others.

Movies/TV/Books...

Movies - Star Wars, Indian Jones & the Last Crusade, Harry Potter

TV - West Wing, the Wire, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 30 Rock, New Girl, Chuck, White Collar, Burn Notice

Books - I wish I could say I was well read but most of the books I've read have been in school, ones that stand out are Red China Blues, Brave New World, Jane Eyre, Raj, the God of Small Things, and the Great Gatsby. I also did enjoy reading all the Harry Potter Books, Eat, Pray, Love, and Juliet Naked. Perhaps I should read more because when I do read, I tend to enjoy it. :)

As a house guest, I'm considerate and helpful. When I stay with friends I always clean up after myself and clean up in general, make meals, and try to help out where I can.

As a host, I like people to be comfortable and have had enough flatmates to know that what makes someone comfortable can be different for everyone so I also try to be flexible and accommodating. I prefer to communicate clearly and am happy to provide information and assistance when needed.
