Software Engineer and Instructor
Owen started programming in BASIC on an Atari 2600 and an Apple IIe and has been hooked ever since. After three years as a software engineer, he embraced his love for education, spending two years teaching math in West Africa with the Peace Corps, and then eight years as an educational technologist and computer science teacher at The Lovett School in Atlanta. Now, Owen combines his love of code with his love of teaching as an instructor at the Ranch. Owen also happens to be quite a singer, performing with the Atlanta Symphony Chorus for over ten years — a gig that’s taken him to Carnegie Hall and won him a Grammy (shared with 300 co-musicians, but still, it’s a Grammy). Soccer is his drug of choice, he’s an avid cook, and wants to teach his dog programming so he can join Owen at the Ranch every day.
