Colin is an American snowboarder, surfer and adventurer currently based out of Portland, Maine.  He is a British citizen, New Zealand permanent resident and becoming an Argentine resident and is constantly evolving his international network and impact.

He currently competes as a snowboarder on the highly coveted Freeride World Tour, the world’s most competitive extreme skiing and snowboarding event. He has competed internationally over the past seven years and is continuing to make impressions at any contest he rides.

While not in competition mode, he may also be found guiding in Hokkaido, Japan, on the remote Fiordland coastline of New Zealand as an integral member of the Awarua Guides Team, at home testing and reviewing new products, or back at home creating fresh content for his business, Port Creative Consulting.  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, follow him on Twitter, or for the best glimpse, check out his Instagram.
