Collin was born in Dallas, Texas, however grew up in the Rocky Mountain foothills of Boulder, Colorado. He attended Westmont College in Santa Barbara California on a tennis scholarship, earning a degree in Communication Studies. Post graduation, he had the opportunity of travelling throughout Latin America, spending extended time in Guatemala where he taught tennis while developing his fluency in Spanish. It was this experience that helped him to begin shaping his vision for Zadoon as an international company; a vision now being realized with clientele in Africa, the Middle East and other parts of the world.

A resident of Annapolis, Maryland for the past 12 years, when he is not busy growing Zadoon, he enjoys biking, boating, soccer, hiking and playing guitar. He returns home to Colorado as often as his schedule permits so he can breathe the fresh mountain air and spend time continuing to cultivate the company and consider other ways Zadoon can fulfill its vision of "developing the world, one person at a time, one machine at a time".
