Born in Newcastle, Australia, Colin commenced his tertiary studies at the Newcastle Conservatorium with Warwick Tyrrell (former principal trombone Adelaide Symphony Orchestra). After graduating with a Bachelor of Music in 2011, Colin undertook further postgraduate study at the Sydney Conservatorium with Scott Kinmont. Colin is currently completing his Soloist Diploma with Professor Jonas Bylund at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien in Hannover, Germany.

While studying in Europe, Colin achieved success in a number of international music competitions. In 2017, he won First Prize at both the Eighth International Competition for Brass Instruments in Gdansk, Poland, and the First International Trombone Competition in Alsace, France. Colin was also a semi-finalist of the Porcia International Trombone competition in 2015.

As a soloist, Colin has been engaged to perform concerti with a number of orchestras including, most recently, the Göttinger Symphonie Orchester, Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, and Philharmonisches Orchester Bremerhaven.

Since 2018, Colin has held the position of Principal Trombone with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. As a guest musician, Colin has been invited to work with orchestras and chamber ensembles in both Australia and Europe including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Staatsoper Hannover, Teatro Regio di Torino, and World Brass. Colin was also Principal Trombone of the Australian Youth Orchestra for their 2013 International Tour with Christoph Eschenbach.
