From: Vancouver, Washington.
Education: Obtained a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Western Oregon University. After working for a year and not using that degree he decided to go back to college and get his master's in education. He did so through Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. He was drawn to teaching and educating youth because every day is different than the last, days are exciting and move quickly, and you get to see young people succeed first hand.
Hobbies: Growing up, Colin played high school and college football. Now he enjoys hunting, fishing, and spending time outdoors with his family.
Alaska EXCEL: Alaska Excel has served a key role in LKSD students learning about life skills, work opportunities, and earning real workforce credentials that lead to employment. Students always come back home better than when they left, either with life or career skills.
Mantra: I always advise students to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. You don't want to be 25 and say "I really should have tried that back when I was 16."
