Collin grew up in Pasco, Washington, where he attended Tri-Cities Prep Catholic high school. He received a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Gonzaga University in 2015 and worked in Spokane as a civil engineer for two years. His desire to become a Jesuit was sparked by a SEEL retreat through St. Aloysius parish, and he is attracted to the Jesuits’ commitment to stand with people on the margins.

He enjoys traveling, cooking, nature, craft beer, and watching Gonzaga basketball. He is currently completing his First Studies at Loyola University Chicago.
