"I make a lot of mistakes in life. Not because I'm human,
but because... I have no clue what the hell I'm doing." -- Dawan Owens


About D

After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Information Science, and rising through the ranks of one of the world’s top IT consulting firms, Dawan Owens realized that comedy was his true calling. Almost immediately after his stand-up earned him a spot in Comedy Central’s “Open Mic Fight,” Dawan booked his first acting job as a series regular on “The Bobby Lee Project.”

Since then, Dawan has appeared on numerous television shows, including, “Southland,” “New Girl,” “Criminal Minds,” “NCIS:LA” and “Hit the Floor.” He had a breakout recurring role on Fuse’s first scripted series, “The Hustle,” and recently made his big-screen debut alongside Felicity Huffman, Amanda Peet and Sam Rockwell in Clark Gregg’s “Trust Me.”

Dawan currently stars in The Oprah Winfrey Network's, hit freshman series, "Tyler Perry's, If Loving You is Wrong." He plays Quan, a volatile character whose intentions to bring his best friend Joey back in the fold, upon his return home, are seen as mislead.
