Founder/CTOJosiah Philipsen

Josiah founded NextTech Consultants in 2015. He graduated from George Fox University with a degree in Elementary Education. While teaching, Josiah found his passion was in educational technology and loved helping teachers use technology in their classroom to engage students. After budget cuts at the school, it was time for a change in careers and he quickly fell into the technology field. It brings him great joy to help people make technology a tool rather than a frustration. His promise to you is to work hard so that your business grows efficiently with the competitive edge technology can provide.

Josiah has three sons and a beautiful wife and together they attend Northwest Christian Church. His hobbies are remodeling houses, video games, and when possible, snowboarding or other outdoor activities.
