Drawing on nearly two decades of expertise in the field of environmental conservation and advocacy, Mr. Owings earned distinction as the president of High Impact Environmental. Established in 2009, the nonprofit organization sought to advance the cause of educating the general public on the efficacy of cost-effective stormwater conservation and management practices in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland. In his role as the president, Mr. Owings bore a particular specialty in designing and implementing stormwater control devices, and worked tirelessly to raise awareness and to promote the reduction of stormwater discharge in the local area, which exerts a detrimental effect on nearby Hambleton Creek through the deposit of harmful sediments, nutrients and other pollutants.

Following this accomplishment, he worked on his family farm for nearly a decade, whereupon he took a position in site development, particularly involving the paving of asphalt, for construction projects on behalf of such organizations as the Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning, Anne Arundel County and other federal government agencies. Following this period, Mr. Owings returned to his original profession as a farmer and began Hambleton Creek Farms, where he grows grain, and through which he garnered the impetus to establish High Impact Environmental.
Through his vocational journey has been suffused with many standout moments, Mr. Owings is most proud of the totality of what he has accomplished, running his farm and advocating for environmental reform in his local area. In accounting for his success, he credits his propensity for sheer determination and perseverance. Looking toward the future, Mr. Owings aspires to see his program for stormwater control receive greater attention as a best practices model for the agricultural industry.
