Dave Owen is a technologist with a background in architecture and design, who believes strongly in acting in service to others. His focus in any space is on solving problems, even technical ones, through connection: by listening carefully, lifting people up, and building community. Dave knows the power — and responsibility — of technology and architecture to be driving forces for transformation in people’s lives. And as a longtime gardener, he believes in the importance of patience and consistency in cultivating both plants and relationships.
Dave has over 20 years of experience with the operations of Tech companies of various sizes, and is a longtime observer of trends in Tech, including those focused on human rights and equity. He has more recently realized he can make a contribution to changing the culture of Tech and is, consequently, a proud co-conspirator.
Dave holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Oregon.
