Zach Owen is a Senior Backend Engineer with WebDevStudios. Zach provides support for creating custom plugins, working with complex theme setup, and delivering data migrations for our clients. He has worked with WDS to engineer solutions for Microsoft, Viacom, International Living, and many other clients.
Zach’s interest in web design started with Hyper Studio in the 90s, and became a true passion near 2000 when his uncle gave him a copy of Website Wizard—a simple HTML generation tool that fit on a floppy disk. His studies continued throughout his teenage years, reading books on Java, HTML, and C, during church services. From freelance to contracting to WebDevStudios, Zach has been working in the field of PHP web development for nearly two decades.
When he’s not working, Zach enjoys the company of his family, including two pit bulls and two cats. He plays video games and works on music in his spare time, and contributes to open source projects related to both.
