If you’re bored in this city you might not be paying attention. Alexis believes there is always something fun to do in Vancouver if you look. Her favorites include lounging in a park with her two cats (on colourful leashes), hiking to the points of local mountains to picnic, crowding up to frontman/woman spitting distance at live shows, meandering through one of the cities’ art galleries, or drinking the night away on-theme at costume parties.

An adventurer at heart, Alexis has tromped through Angkor Wat, traversed the Inca Trail, squealed with penguins in Patagonia, held a puffin in Iceland, watched the sun rise behind Moai on Easter Island, touched old things all over Europe, clapped at Chechen Itza in Mexico, ducked into the Cu Chi tunnels in Vietnam, and plans to get to Mt. Everest base camp in 2016. Her writing has appeared in Vancouver Is Awesome, BCBusiness, Ion, BCLiving, and Absolute Underground.
