Founder Bio

My name is Steve Owens. I was a schoolteacher for 30 years working in secondary and post-secondary education. I have a Master’s degree in Geology from Colorado School of Mines and a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from University of Colorado Denver. I was a high school science teacher, teaching primarily in the Geosciences and Advanced Placement Physics. I spent approximately the last half of my career as a part-time classroom teacher, and on special assignments for the rest of my time. These special assignments included technology coach, student teaching program coordinator and coach, university liaison, and school data analyst.

After retiring, I began a second career with Drillinginfo as a manager of software user education. Drillinginfo provides products for the oil and gas industry for the collection and analysis of data for upstream, midstream, and downstream clients.
