I’m Spencer Owen and This Is How I Mesh

The grandson of two engineers, the son of an architect and banker, and the brother of a physicist. I have always hopelessly been destined for a career in math and science. Raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; known historically as the home of the Reynolds family (or more specifically Camel cigarettes), I spent most of my time growing up surrounded by my family and church. Apart from school; my free time was filled with classical guitar lessons, church youth and scouting activities, as well as the occasional drama production.

In school I was always fascinated by the beauty and order of mathematics and so I began searching for the applications of it. This passion for exploring the use of mathematics led me to the great college of Texas A&M. Here, I began expanding my knowledge in my pursuit of a BS in Applied Mathematics.
