Think Owen is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Joseph Paul
We worked together
Owen is a big brained genius - super creative and super analytical at the same time. This means he can create marketable ideas but has the c ... apabilities to bring it to fruition. Have him sit in on a brainstorm some time - you'll see what I mean. As a former entrepreneur, I highly recommend him.

Owen is an excellent communicator and has a great attention to details.
Paul DAigle
We worked together
He has a very outside-the-box personality, with great ideas and skills to match. Having witnessed his creativity and originality first hand ... , I know of no one more worthy of the title "entrepreneur". I consider myself to be very inventive and creative, but compared to him, I am not even in the same ballpark, let alone, the same game.

Joseph Paul
They're my school  •  Art Director/Graphic Designer, J. Paul Design. Previously Partner/Creative Director/Art Director, The Creative Underground.
To put it simply, Owen is a genius. His analytical ability is only surpassed by his ability for creative visualization. So he's the guy you ... want on your brainstorming team, your go to - get it done guy, your wow, that's even better then I thought it turn out guy. Talk to him for 10 minutes about anything and you'll see what I mean.

Tom doesnt sit on his laurels and is always pushing himself and others. Its one of the things I like about Tom; even when I dont agree with ... him, he gives me great things to think about. One of my favorite things was that 'good enough' wasn't good enough for Tom and it wasnt for me either :) People like Tom will always be an asset because he will be looking to improve your company, product and project any way you let him.
