Image of Aleesa SuttonAleesa Sutton has an A.R.C.T. from the Royal Conservatory of Music and a B.A. in Music from Brigham Young University. These have opened up countless opportunities such as legal secretary, double-decker tour bus guide and ice cream scooper. Once, she also played the piano at a crazy Mexican couple’s dinner party, where they tied a bib around her neck and spoon-fed her soup.

She starved artfully for a few years in Toronto before becoming a Cambridge-certified ESL teacher and teaching abroad. When her backpacking trip across Europe surprisingly did not produce the husband she’d always dreamed of, she came home and decided to write a book about it all.

Aleesa lives in Vancouver, BC, where she continues to teach English and dream of sharing the fridge with someone, someday.
