Jens & Lisa Owens
Steamboat Springs, Colorado, USA. We also spend some time on the West Coast in Palo Alto, California.
Playa Santana, Nicaragua
What do you do for work?
We both have software engineering backgrounds. Lisa is currently writing for a software database product. Jens is a serial software entrepreneur; he currently works for one of the largest FANG companies.
Reason for joining Unsettled together?

The timing coincided with a motorcycle trip Jens had planned through Central America. He started three weeks ago in California, and ended the bike trip in Nicaragua, where he reunited with Lisa at the Unsettled homebase in Playa Santana.

This was the pre-AOL era, where Jens used a 300-baud modem and precious company resources to send that email out. P.S. Back then, an email was not a “thing” for common folk…
