Current Projects

Death may be the great equalizer, but not all deaths are created equal.

I am currently working on a PhD in Creative Writing. My PhD project will culminate in a collection of creative nonfiction essays that explore inequalities in death and dying, particularly as experienced by the homeless and very poor. I’m looking at both end-of-life care with regards to health disparities at end of life including access to EOL care, agency/choice and dignity, and post-death options including both burial/disposition and memorialization/naming.
