Owen was born and raised in Powell River, BC. Growing up, he spent most weekends travelling all over Vancouver Island playing hockey. During his high school years, Owen worked for a construction company in Powell River. Although he enjoyed his time there, he decided to take the advice of family and friends and pursue his passion for accounting after graduation.
In 2014, he moved to Nanaimo to enroll in the Bachelor of Business Administration program at Vancouver Island University. In his final semester, he joined JJA as an intern and officially joined the team in April 2018. Owen is currently enrolled in the CPA professional education program.
During the summer, Owen spends his spare time outdoors hiking and camping with his girlfriend, Julie. He also spends as much time as he can at his family cabin on Powell Lake. In the winter months, he heads to the mountains to snowboard or snow shoe.
