There is little information about Owen’s early years and ancestry in the whole. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at the University of California, Santa Cruz, from which he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English and American literature.

Owen’s professional career really started in 1998, when he joined Amazon.com as Vice President of Worldwide Business and Corporate Development. He served in the position until 2005 and was one of the main people responsible for launching A9.com, the Amazon.com search company. He then left Amazon.com and joined Facebook as Chief Operating Officer, and was in charge of revenue operations, strategic partnerships, and business development, a position in which he served until 2008, and soon after his departure, Owen became CEO of Project Playlist, a music website that allows its users to share, search for music and also create their own playlists.

After Project Playlist, Owen became CEO of MySpace, making a big change in company’s business strategy, making it an entertainment content distribution platform, rather than the social network. In no time, company’s profits increased and revenues reached a new high. This only increased Owen’s net worth. However, he stayed at MySpace just ten months as he left to join Zynga, a video game development internet company. He remained in the company from August 2010 until November 2011 serving as Executive Vice President of Business and as a member of the Board of Directors.

Two years after leaving Zynga he co-founded 415, LLC, while most recently he became Director at Boku mobile payments, a system which enables clients to pay for purchases using apps on their mobile ‘phone, also known as carrier billing and which enables the by-passing of credit cards. His position is further increasing his wealth.

Regarding his personal life, Owen is married to Jennifer and the couple resides in San Francisco Bay Area.
