As a California Wedding Officiant for over 35 years in Big Sur and on the Monterey Peninsula, Brian has enjoyed helping couples create a ceremony that reflects their values and intentions for their life together. 

Brian is a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary where he earned a Master of Divinity degree (M.Div.). He has served as a college chaplain (Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA), as a Hospice Chaplain (Hospice of The Central Coast in Monterey, CA), and as an Interim Pastor. 

Brian is comfortable with large or small weddings, with inter-faith marriages, and with those who want a spiritual but not necessarily religious ceremony.
