Owen bills himself as a Renaissance Man for the modern era. He has sailed across the ocean a few times, saved a couple of lives and spent way too much quality time in the mountains. He is an Apple Computer Technician, a paramedic and recently finished a Bachelors in Public Health from the University of Colorado Denver.
The experience of fatherhood has reinforced his love for teaching. Owen lives for the “ah-ha” moment when person’s eyes light up, and their worldview expands because they understand a concept for the first time. For Owen that is the best feeling in the world.
Owen has been operating drones for the past few years. After finishing up a Bachelor degree in Public Health from UC Denver, he decided to turn that passion into a career. Owen currently runs Lofty Solutions, a drone business providing aerial media, exploration and consulting services. (www.loftysolutionsllc.com)
With research, I was determined to try to make them myself, so I bought my first sewing machine. In high school, I dreamed of becoming a teacher… My first job was at a daycare when I was 16. Then 3 other day cares as I grew up. After the birth of my second child, I decided to cloth diaper.
Immediately I was hooked. I made several cloth diapers, then several quilts, nursing covers, and quickly my talents moved into anything I wanted to sew I would teach myself, then master it. I am 100% self-taught. I have started a small business where I sew for friends and family making custom gifts for their loved ones. I also have taught a few live online classes, for beginners. Since then I have taught myself to use a dye cut machine and my business has evolved from just sewing to making custom shirts, hats, cups, and wine glasses for a wide variety of people. Although I love to create, my passion has always been teaching. Sharing my passion with people of all ages brings me so much joy.
