I am available for weddings, funerals/life celebrations, and baby-naming ceremonies primarily in the Chicagoland area. In me you will find someone sensitive to your needs, someone thorough, someone flexible. Contact me for a free consultation, either via phone or video conference. I am available for out-of-state engagements on a limited basis.
After serving as a Christian pastor for 20 years, a series of events, failure, self-reflection and study moved me beyond belief in any supernatural deity. I feel more authentic and alive than ever with a passion to help other humanists, atheists, naturalists, agnostics and non-religious experience beautiful and meaningful life-moment celebrations! I draw on two decades of performing weddings, officiating memorials and emceeing ceremonies along with a hopeful naturalist philosophy of life to provide quality, personal, and meaningful alternatives to religious ceremonies.
