Colin Owen was raised by wolves in the southern hinterlands. He was housebroken and washed at Rice University (BA in Arch, B. of Arch.), and then distilled into a proper design-beast at Art Center College of Design (MSID). In past consulting life he served a diverse set of clients including Wireless Generation, Nokia, NASA, Nike, Biodesign and Terrazign. He teaches at California College of the Arts in the Undergraduate Industrial Design Department and Graduate Design Department. Colin is the founder of Sparse, an urban cycling brand launched in 2012. He spends sleepless nights in his lair building, tinkering and writing. He has not yet bitten any, students, VC's, or customers.
