After graduating from Tulane University with a B.A. in English I moved back home and sought to pursue a writing career. From April 2011 until January of 2013 I wrote informative content and creative blog posts for a San Francisco startup called SevenPonds, an informational resource for end-of-life topics which sought to expand the dialogue on death and dying and defy the taboos associated with the funeral industry. Lastly I’ve included updates I wrote, on my own, concerning the Occupy Oakland movement, where I tried my hand, with varying degrees of success, at community organizing. I hope you find the content I’ve included of these two arenas informative or at least entertaining.
