“Creative doing is better than creative thinking.”
Nehemiah will graduate from Western Washington University in June with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. He is on track to graduate at the top of his class and is the first in his family to earn a degree.
As a “creative doer” and aspiring entrepreneur, he plans on finishing college, rolling up his sleeves and making something awesome.
When he’s not working or studying, you can find Nehemiah playing music, creating art, people watching, fishing and sailing he Puget Sound. He has a wife, three dogs and an overweight cat.
He’s currently working on a top-secret project for Combat Flip Flops. When confronted about the project, Nehemiah responded by saying, “It’s big — really big!”
After spending over 25 years in technology he returned to school and has spent the past 3 years completing an Associates degree in business and accounting from Olympic College and is in his final quarter to complete his BA in Business from Western Washington University on the Peninsulas.
In his free time he has been a founding member of the Western Washington Poultry Farmer Cooperative (WWPFC) (Formerly Kitsap Poultry Growers Cooperative) (KPGC) and serves as President and as Equipment Coordinator for the Co-op’s poultry processing equipment rental program. In 2012 completed a project working with the Northwest Cooperative Development Center (NWCDC) under a USDA Rural Business Enterprise grant (RBEG) completing incorporation and business plan for the KPGC. In 2013 he headed up and successfully completed a project to bring a mobile poultry processing unit (MPPU) into operation for poultry and rabbit farmers in Western Washington counties. Together with his wife, Michele Gilles, Stuart, taught the Poultry Processing from Pasture to Plate workshop sponsored by WSU Clallam County Extension. Together they run a small farm in Silverdale breeding SPN certified Narragansett turkey plus Jersey Giant and Delaware chickens.
Currently on an internship to help introduce cool new products for CFF, but if he told you any details he would have to kill you.
