Since Colin was old enough to push a VHS tape into a VCR, he’s been escaping through enter- tainment. He created his first films at the age of 11, most of which were of the horror genre, emulating Troma films, set to the music of the Misfits. Colin’s greatly influenced by being one of four boys born and raised in Southern California by a single mother and by his father, an ex- marine and actor who committed suicide when Colin was 10 years old.
Colin got his start as a Development Assistant at Scott Free Productions, Heyday Films, and the now defunct Dos Tontos headed by veteran Producer Michael Aguilar. From there, Colin became a Producer at New Wave Entertainment, all while moonlighting as a Writer/Director, creating a number of commercials and short films that ran the festival circuit worldwide ulti- mately winning a series of awards, including: Best Horror Short at Macabre Faire Film Festival and Achievement in Filmmaking at Idyllwild International Cinema Festival.
Colin is an alumnus of the Film and Electronic Arts Department at California State University Long Beach, where he received the prestigious Hollywood Foreign Press Grant and graduated Cum Laude from the Narrative Production track. He believes in the power of the mind and spirit, the value of hard work, good food and good films. "The goal is to make something ex- ceptional, thoughtful and entertaining, no matter the medium.” When not on set, Colin spends his time traveling with his wife, playing with his baby boy, hiking with his dog Obi-Wan and cooking for the entire family.
