About Me

hi! i’m coco or corine (they/themme pronouns) I’m an artist, educator, care worker, and organizer living in Boston MA in the US (the traditional and occupied land of the Massachusett on Turtle Island). I’m fully vaccinated ♥️

I am passionate about the creative arts (theater, music, visual art, etc.) and how they can be used to empower and create positive social change. I am particularly interested in racial and economic justice, LGBTQ* rights, education, and abolition / transformative justice, and I work in community based orgs/ non-profits, carceral spaces, and art museums and galleries.

I'm a low-key person, very clean and organized, and am easy going. I love dogs, good food, doing art, hanging out and going out and exploring everywhere. I am very adventurous and free spirited, and am always down to try something new. I love brewing/ craft beer, am a Trekkie, play lots of board games and DnD, and enjoy herbalism / foraging. I love dark room photography, printmaking, fashion design/ textile art, and creative writing/poetry. I also love the outdoors (hiking, kayaking, swimming, etc.) and love traveling and seeing the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

the Couchsurfing community and ideals are something I absolutely love. It's more than sharing your home for a traveler, or even traveling, but about cultural exchange, making new friends, pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone, meeting amazing folks from around the world and in your own community. It's brought me so much joy, given me wonderful experiences and conversations, and made me a whole lot of lifelong friends. I wish to share as much with others as possible and also learn from others, and the mission of Couchsurfing makes that possible in many ways!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

skydiving in Saint Martin, able to see the whole island, and then the next day scuba diving and seeing turtles

camping under the stars on a beach on an island outside Faro, Portugal with CS hosts

boat ride on Lake Kivu from Gisyeni Rwanda with a beloved friend (as part of a three week trip around Tanzania, Rwanda, and Kenya)

Teach, Learn, Share

these days i’m learning a lot about herbalism and plants, Jewish mysticism & magic, and always new art techniques. i love to cook, make, create, and explore and love to share.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a good cook, friendly and i like to think sometimes kinda funny. I am very helpful around the place and just generally good company and conversation. i am respectful but will also push you out of your comfort zone to try new wonderful things.

i can also share my knowledge about herbalism, judaism, teach you different art forms, provide lighthearted banter or serious philosophical discussion, and will love to bake or cook you something from my corner of the world / ancestry.
