Hi! My name is Anna (my friends call me Pikachu) and I graduated from McGill University in Neuroscience and first worked in design/communications at the head office of ALDO, then in project management for clinical trials on neurological diseases. Airbnb helped to fulfil my travelling dream where I did one year of backpacking, photographing and writing about my experiences in Asia, Europe, and North America. I currently work at TD bank while guest blogging for (website hidden) on organizational psychology and workplace/career happiness, and striving to converge what science knows and what business does.
I love creative photo shoots, painting, modern dance, piano, gardening, helping out with startups and anything creative and artistic; my apartment is a true representation of me :) I also love TED talks, reading and blogging about the latest neuroscience discoveries, and thin-slicing.
Airbnb came into my life when I was looking for a place to stay in Rome during my Europe trip (a birthday gift to myself), and I thought, this would be a great way to save money and I can do the same for my apartment! Since then, I have met many wonderful travellers from all over the world and I look forward to meeting YOU at my artistic apartment in downtown Montreal!
Life motto at the moment: You can’t have everything at the same time, learn to be at peace with that.
