Owen was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, but now resides in New York City. He has worked hard to adapt his Canadian sensibilities into the fast-paced NYC lifestyle, apologizing less and only occasionally ending sentences with “eh?” after long trips home. Prior to joining Chowhound, Owen oversaw editorial for CBS Interactive’s music brands. In his spare time, he enjoys playing sports and exploring Brooklyn’s dive bar scene, though typically not simultaneously. Fun fact: he’ll eat virtually anything between two slices of bread.
