The desire to create a purposeful physical space for these conversations arose after I went on a cross-country road trip that allowed me to connect with people from all walks of life. In almost every conversation I had with friends and strangers alike, I noticed people were attempting to feel closure around things left unsaid with people who had died or were terminally ill. By creating an intentional and tangible space, with prompts for guidance and no wrong way to interact, Conversations I Wish I Had gives its participants the permission and privacy to explore these unresolved situations and feelings with people who are no longer around, whether they're alive or not.

Conversations I Wish I Had is just one of the things I do through my production company Death Dialogue, which is a place for meaningful conversations around death, truth, and vulnerability.
