I received my Masters of Divinity from The Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, CA. Originally ordained a Catholic priest, today I work as a non-denominational wedding officiant. During the last twenty+ years, I’ve celebrated over 1000 weddings – non-denominational, inter-faith, cross-cultural, same-sex.
My wedding ceremonies have been seen on Lifetime, The Style Network, VH-1, E! Entertainment, The WE and CBS TV.
I’ve collaborated with many of the Wedding Industry’s top event planners and I’m honored to be Brides Magazine preferred officiant for their annual Brides Live Wedding Event.
In addition to my responsibilities as an officiant, I am the founder of The Business of Confidence (JPBOC.com). Through one-on-one coaching as well as workshops and keynotes, I show business professionals how to communicate in smart, strategic ways so as to present themselves with insight and confidence. My clients range from the not-for-profit sector to the Fortune 500.
I regularly lecture on issues of communication and relationships at UCLA Extension and blog with The Huffington Post.
