I am a chaplain and ex-minister who has experience performing marriages and funerals. I have familiarity with, and am also available to counsel those who are facing death, leaving religion, or struggling with addiction. I also love speaking about Religion, Philosophy, and Atheism and my path leaving the ministry.
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.
