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 became a celebrant, counselor, and university chaplain because I love helping people make the most of life’s biggest moments. I’m a warm, friendly community builder with loads of onstage experience, so this work comes naturally to me. I spent three decades as a Christian minister before slowly losing my faith, but unless we’re talking about spirituality, even my closest friends can’t really tell the difference. I always believed in the transformative power of love, and I still do.
