As a registered architect since 2004, Owen thrives on challenging projects that involve diverse stakeholders and user groups. He believes meaningful and unique projects are born out of these interactions, and that the built environment must inspire lifestyles that promote the needs of our communities as a whole. 

Owen is an accepting and curious leader, who shows up engaged and committed to facilitate others to excel. 

After a four month, 30,000 km road trip around North America, Owen and his wife ‘mid-life transitioned’ to the West Coast in 2017, where they’ve found their forever place.
