Born and raised in Southern California, Colin struggled with addiction from a young age. After spending time in and out of institutions from the age of 11 to 15, Colin got clean on May 9, 2008. At the age of 18, Colin started working in adolescent treatment. Before joining Visions, Colin also spent time touring in bands and recording music for TV and commercials.
In late 2017, Colin joined Visions as a Program Aide. Colin quickly connected with the residents, being able to relate to the struggles of teenage addiction. In 2018, Colin began his role as Recovery Mentor. He loved meeting one on one with the kids, helping guide them through the process of recovery. In 2019, Colin was promoted to Program Manager. In this role, Colin supports the program aides, addressing the day-to-day needs of the residents and facility.
In addition, Colin works with exotic animals, caring for and breeding a number of different species. He also is a big fan of GM cars and trucks and Harley-Davidson motorcycles—fixing, customizing, and driving them alike.
