Collin was born in Kuwait and moved to Scarborough when he was 9 years old. He later moved to Mississauga where he lived until 7 years ago, when he moved to the Halton region. He attended McMaster University where he obtained his Honours Bachelor of Commerce, and later obtained his Chartered Professional Accountant designation. He currently works for Hamilton Health Sciences as the Manager of Financial Reporting and Business Transformation, which he started in November of 2020. He has been working for HHS for three years. Collin lives in downtown Burlington with his partner and two cats, Charlie the ragdoll and Maggie the Maine Coon.
Collin enjoys gardening, traveling and hanging out with his family. He became a vegan in 2014 after watching the documentary Cowspiracy and became extremely concerned about the state of the planet. Since then, he has participated in the Global Climate Strike and actively spreads the message about the effects of animal agriculture as it relates to GHG and how to be a better steward to the planet. He believes that bringing sustainable practices to everyone’s doorstep is the best way to spread the message, as people will start to put pressure on the current system in order to create change.
Collin serves as BurlingtonGreen’s Treasurer on the Board of Directors.
