As a Senior Developer at EffectiveUI, Greg Owen is one of the fortunate few that see beautiful UIs not as slick animations and compelling graphics, but as XML tags and garbled English punctuated by semicolons. Greg completed his MS in Computer Science at Baylor in 2007 and has since been the lead developer on eBay Desktop as well as a principal contributer on projects for Discovery Channel and MTV, among others. When not working in Flex, he enjoys coding in Ruby, C++, and Java. From time to time you might also find him writing on his blog titled, "Behind the UI." Greg blogs at http://www.behindtheui.com.
