I get great satisfaction from helping people and believe in doing the very best that I can to help people out.
That belief has informed everything I’ve done from serving in the U.S. Navy to becoming a non-denominational wedding officiant to volunteering at organizations mentoring students and helping veterans to working with clients at various companies and now at Alcorn Immigration Law.
I served in the Navy Construction Battalion, the military’s premier combat construction unit, for 22 years. As a member of that unit, I was deployed to combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as other places around the globe in the wake of natural disasters. After spending years studying religions, I became a non-denominational minister in 2004 after friends of mine were unable to find anyone willing to perform a religious wedding ceremony for a gay couple. Only a civil ceremony was available to them, so I decided to change that.
Now, I’ll help streamline processes to ensure immigration success for Alcorn clients from my office in Spokane, Wash.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me spending time with my family, refereeing high school football, reading, or throwing logs and stones to compete in Highland games throughout the West. I also serve as the Chairman of the Spokane Highland Games Association. A centuries-old competition that originated in Scotland, Highland game events include the 20-foot-long caber (log) toss, stone put, and hammer throw. My dream vacation would be to go to northern Scotland, where my clan is from, to taste all the whiskey I can and watch a true Highland game.
