Get to know Colin

Colin is an avid outdoorsman spending much of his free time hiking and climbing with his wife in the mountains of Tennessee.  He collects nature field guide books & how-to books.  When asked what he would do if he was given all the resources do so, Colin shared that “I’d buy a large track of land; recruit innovative farmers/ranchers, environmental engineers, botanists/scientists, artisans/craftsmen, homesteaders, primitive/pioneer skills experts, nature-based educators, etc. to live on the land and develop a closed-loop, self-sufficient demonstration farm community. This Farm Community would serve as an experimental model and research/education center for sustainable farming, regenerative economics.”


Colin resides in Knoxville, TN with his wife Erin and their pibble Lilly.

Colin's Charity of Choice

“Sticking to my hometown roots, I’ve chosen Roanoke, Virginia-based LEAP (Local Environmental Agriculture Project) as the 501(c)3 non-profit to which I’d like Blue Rock to donate. As someone who passionately committed much of his twenties to regenerative farming and ranching, I support and believe in LEAP’s mission “to nurture healthy communities and resilient local food systems” through connecting the local farmers, food producers, culinary entrepreneurs and community members.”
