A Little Bit About Me..

Hey there. I'm Owen. 👋

I’m currently following my passion of entrepreneurship and business, targeting technology in the construction sector. This is done mainly through my startup, Bilt, as well as my podcast Bricks and Bytes.

I’ve worked in the construction industry since 2012 and have over 2 years of running my own business ODQS.

Deeply passionate about technology and how it can disrupt and improve the world, I am extremely curious and find myself researching, reading or learning new skills as often as possible.
