More About

Colin was born and raised around Athens, Georgia and attended UGA for his undergraduate. After graduation, Colin worked as a rafting and fly fishing guide in remote Alaska for four years. Although it was admittedly the best job he’s ever had, Colin decided to move to the Washington DC area in the spring of 2017 to pursue a certificate in terrorism analysis from the University of Maryland and to explore job opportunities related to international security consulting. Upon completion of the certificate program and a congressional internship in 2018, Colin was offered an analysis position with an international communications consultant in Washington DC and has been working there since. Dreams of earning a master’s degree motivated Colin to move back to Athens, although he continues to conduct research for the consultant on a part time basis.

Research Interests

Colin’s research interests include Salafi-inspired terrorist groups, conflicts in the Middle East and Africa, insurgent tactics and strategies, and military history.
