Hi! I am an ethical humanist celebrant in the Chicago area but have traveled to other states performing weddings. My eclectic background as faculty and staff in higher education inspires opportunities to help create unique, personalized memorials or wedding celebrations, including surprises if desired. Let’s chat.
Hi. My name is Max and I became a Humanist celebrant in 2018. I am an attorney and live in Brooklyn. I’m a dog person, blue belt in Brazilian jujitsu and do the Polar Bear plunge in the icy waters of Coney Island every January 1.
I am glad to be a Humanist Celebrant and Chaplain in the the Chicagoland area. As a Celebrant, it would be my honor to journey with persons for officiating weddings (including pre-marital guidance), facilitating memorials, baby dedications, secular invocations, and other spiritual care needs. Currently I work as a Chaplain and Certified Educator Student at a Level 1 Trauma hospital in a suburban county. My background is as a youth adviser, elderly caregiver, human rights advocate, and writer.
I’ve been a Humanist Celebrant since 2015. It is not my primary job, yet I am honored to perform non-religious ceremonies whenever I am available. I have done weddings, funerals, vigils, and vow-renewals. These events are important to those involved and I like to work with the participants to develop a custom ceremony tailored to their needs.
