I have experience in crafting and assisting with wedding and commitment ceremonies, child dedications, naming ceremonies, and memorial services. Alongside, I can also offer support in end of life care coordination, advance care planning, and grief counseling.
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.

He works full-time as a Humanist chaplain in university, hospice, and prison environments.
The ceremony is a wonderful opportunity for the couples to articulate their beliefs, values and aspirations, and to create a wedding that truly captures their character. The individual, personalized nature of secular/non religious weddings enables couples, along with their wedding celebrant, to create a ceremony that is uniquely tailored to their own personalities and beliefs. It also makes secular weddings ideal for families that may not fit the narrow traditions of many religions.
