Hi, I'm Owen 👋

I'm a multi-discipline UX manager with a deep technical background. Currently, I'm building tools developers love at Shopify in Toronto.


What I do

I help developer-focused companies connect with the humans using their products.

Leadership

I've lead multi-disciplinary UX teams that get things done, made up of product designers, content designers, and researchers.

Product

Building a design system, internal marketing or a new product? I've helped companies big and small with words and code to get it done.

Technical Product Go-To-Market

Developers can smell marketing a mile away. Get your tools in the hands of the right people, with authentic marketing that doesn't put them off.

Content Design

I've helped companies from Stripe to Spotify make their products easier to use and understand with high-quality content design.

I'm currently not accepting freelance work.

But I'm always open to a yarn over email.

I write a weekly column for Medium's OneZero, the company's forward-looking, original tech and science publication, called Debugger.

The column examines technology and how it impacts our daily lives. Published each Monday, the column breaks down why it matters, and how it affects you.

I'm currently working full-time for Shopify in Toronto, Canada, so I'm not taking on new freelance clients. But, I'm always interested in new ideas or hearing what you're working on, so say hello.
