We are honored to be a part of your journey.

I first witnessed the beauty of hospice as the best man in a special wedding ceremony in the bedroom of a dying family member. Now, more than a decade later, I’m still inspired by this moment and the promise of living fully in the face of an advanced illness. I launched Sonder to elevate how we support those facing advanced illnesses. 

Sonder is inspired by the pursuit of providing a human-centered service, our hometown of Austin, TX, Reimagine End of Life, and Atul Gawande’s, “Being Mortal”. Sonder’s vision is to improve the quality of life in our community by reducing anxiety and suffering caused by advanced illness and inspiring each other to live fully.
