FASHION, FILM AND TV
On a whim, Colin attended a model/talent search event in Chicago, and it wasn’t too long before he was traveling to Europe and working with some of the top designers and photographers in the world. Medical school was put on hold as he began doing campaigns and walking the runways for the likes of Calvin Klein, Versace, and Giorgio Armani, to name a few. This led to his moving to New York City where he continued to work in fashion and began to revisit his roots in acting.
It wasn’t too long before he was portraying the infamous Erica Kane’s son on the long-lived daytime drama, ‘All My Children’ which soon led to roles on such shows as ‘Melrose Place,’ ‘Rizzoli and Isles’ and ‘The Client List’ with Jennifer Love Hewitt. He has also starred in several films, including the romantic comedy ‘Something Borrowed’ with Kate Hudson, ‘Open Road’ with Andy Garcia, ‘The Space Between Us’ with Gary Oldman, and ‘Backtrace’ with Sylvester Stallone.
In addition to acting, Colin actively participates in triathlons and marathons, raising money for St. Jude’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He is also passionate about working with community leaders and developers in Chicago’s south side helping revitalize under-served communities and neighborhoods. Having written his memoir, Agile Artist: Life Lessons from Hollywood and Beyond, Colin regularly speaks to groups around the world about the importance of discovering your voice and how to overcome life’s challenge to realize your dream life!
