Colin is an American snowboarder, surfer and adventurer who has based out of Wanaka, New Zealand for the past five years.  He has recently qualified for the snowboard division of the 2014 Freeride World Tour set to commence in Italy in the New Year.  While not in competition mode, he may also be found in Hokkaido, Japan working as a ski/snowboard guide for Black Diamond Tours, on the remote Fiordland coastline of New Zealand as an integral member of the Awarua Guides Team, and also in an office as marketing coordinator for Logic Funds Management. He’s happiest behind the wheel of a used cargo van full of gear, en route to the mountains or coast, far from the nearest cell tower. Read more about his adventures on his blog or follow him on Twitter.
