Owen

 

Hi I’m Owen! I’m 25 years old and from Manchester, England. I have been with at Incarnation Center since 2016. From a young age, I have always loved the outdoors and being able to get hands on experience with learning. This is an exciting program for staff and students to be able to share adventures and learning opportunities together! I am a huge fan of music and movies, so you’ll often find me playing guitar, ukulele, drumming on things or singing my heart out!
