I transferred to the University of Oregon as a sophomore in the Fall of 1984 and lived in the Kappa Sigma house as a pledge that term before being initiated in January 1985. Initially, I held the position of Guard, then later Pledge Master, and finally Grand Master of Ceremonies while living in the fraternity house. After graduation I backpacked Europe for three months with a high school buddy and even got to visit Bologna, Italy. I began my career after college as a workers’ compensation claims adjuster ultimately rising to become the National Claims Manager of Albertsons Inc.’s nationwide workers compensation program. After a few years the company I worked for lost the account, which prompted me to attend law school in Virginia versus finding another job. I graduated in May 2006 with a Juris Doctor degree and quickly became licensed in Oregon and Washington where I represented employers in workers compensation matters in both states. Sadly, as my new career was just taking off I lost my beloved wife (Dr. Kamelia Massih) to breast cancer in 2010, but I still have her little dog “Paris” to this day.
After representing employers for 11 years I switched sides in 2017 and now solely represent injured workers in workers’ compensation matters. In 2017 I founded Accurate Work Comp, Inc., and have been a solo practicing attorney in Beaverton, Oregon representing injured workers throughout Oregon ever since. I joined the Kappa Sigma Board in 2002 and currently hold the position of Scholarship Chairman.
