Colin is native of New Orleans, where his family has been since the 1700's. Most of his family still lives there, so he considers himself lucky to be able to "go home" so often for work. Before moving to Los Angeles, Colin studied and worked as an actor in New Orleans, Boulder, Boston and Santa Fe. He received a bachelor's degree in acting and directing from The College of Santa Fe, but is far from finished with his studies. He has trained with many teachers including Stephen Book, Karen Grassle, Jack Hannibal, Lily Parker and many others. Proud of his theater roots, he also started a theater company in the basement of a Santa Fe, NM coffee shop with acclaimed playwright Steven Adly Guirgis.
Colin is married to Cathy Kim Walker and they have two young children. He built the home where they live which is a little piece of "Nola" (New Orleans La.) in LALALand. Colin is an avid marathoner and Ironman triathlete - and an enthusiastic surfer. He loves to cook creole dinners, and is known for his annual crawfish boil.
