Position: Program Manager

Pronouns: He/him/his

Colin brought his passion for working with young people to Summer Search when he joined the Seattle team as a mentor in 2013. Since then, Colin has been continually inspired and motivated by the incredible students, families, counselors, and teammates who are part of the Summer Search community.

Born in Seattle and raised in the foothills of the Cascades, Colin attended Boston College where he received a B.A. in English, then quickly returned home to escape the frigid New England winters. Before joining Summer Search, Colin worked as an advocate for young people experiencing homelessness in rural and suburban King County.

Outside of work, Colin enjoys cycling long distances, exploring the lush wildernesses of the Pacific Northwest, and loud music. Sometimes all at once.
