Andrew Gerber has worked as a hospice nurse, guitar builder, carpenter, member of a rock band, poet, and teacher. He has degrees in Religion and Nursing. He is who he is because of the gifts he has received from his friends and family, the people of East Africa, and the many people in Chicago who shared a part of their dying with him. He, his partner, and their co-conspirators live in Southern Indiana. They are cultivating a space for grieving and the arts. They plan on feeding people well (on many levels) and welcoming some heartbreaking beauty into their community. If you need a coffin, urn, poem, guitar, sculpture, piece of furniture, urinary catheter, ancestral altar, song, woodcut or epic meal you might consider contacting him.
