Colin started his career in Montgomery, Alabama as a news content specialist for WFSA 12 News in 2015. He worked mornings and alongside the sports team for high school football highlights, also covering LPGA tournaments in and around the capital city.

Colin returned home to the Gulf coast in 2016, joining WPMI NBC 15 News in Mobile, Alabama working as a photojournalist.

It wasn't long before Colin made an impact on the TV screen. Three months into his role as a photojournalist, Colin took the step to his on-air career airing multiple stories on local high school standouts.

From there, he covered hurricanes and state elections to the College Football Playoff and SEC Championships.

He continued to grow and improve his photography skills plus hone his on-camera skills. In 2019, Colin transitioned into a multimedia journalist and photographer position covering breaking news, weather and sports on the Gulf Coast.

In 2020, Colin was nominated by his peers at the station to host the "Friday Night Blitz" for NBC 15, a show he hosted for two years.

Before his news career, college life brought Colin to Iowa for a year, specifically to Fort Dodge, on a golf scholarship with the Iowa Central Tritons.

From there he transferred to Troy University and continued his career on the course, the classroom and the news station on campus.

Colin hosted several sports shows at TrojanVision while covering men's golf, and men's and women's basketball before graduating in 2015.

Sports has always been part of his life: basketball, baseball, football, hockey and golf were some of the sports Colin pursued throughout his young life.

His biggest moment on any playing field came with him on the sidelines of the SuperDome in New Orleans with one knee on the ground and the love of his life in his hand, asking his now-wife Emily to marry him.

When you don't see Colin around town shooting highlights or featuring the next great college athlete in a story, you can find him around town at one of the local minor league games played right here in Des Moines or out walking with his wife Emily and their fur baby Ollie.

"I'm excited to be here in the great state of Iowa and be able to cover the amazing athletes from the college to the high school level."
