Colin is a spiritual devotee, technologist and writer residing in lovely Portland Oregon. Having moved to the Pacific Northwest nearly 20 years ago from the Northeast Colin enjoys the beauty of nature and the magic of the natural world. Colin’s work and writings have been inspired by both his inner and outer journey. He joined the Army just after dropping out of high school and learned meditation while in the service embarking on a Buddhist path. After the military he earned a BA and MA degree in psychology and worked as a behavioral researcher at Yale University School of Medicine. After moving to Portland, Colin transitioned into a technology career in computer networking and later web design. Today he follows the path of Advaita Vedanta as expressed in the teachings of Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi and lives a simple life in the moment. Colin’s work now is geared toward using his skills and talents in a variety of ways to benefit the community and help create a more conscious world.
