Collin was born in St. Amant, Louisiana, and studied graphic design at USL in Lafayette. There he met his wife Michelle. After college, he started working for Lamar Advertising, where he worked for 8 years. After meeting Steve in 1998, together they decided to found Vivid Ink Graphics in 1999.
Collin is the leader of the Vivid Ink Graphics pre-press team. Before anything is printed, Collin ensures that the colors match exactly with a customer's expectations and that any variation for printing on different substrates is considered. He believes there are two primary reasons for the success Vivid Ink Graphics has seen since its founding. The first is an unmatched client-first attitude, and the second is a team culture which has learned to thrive under pressure.
Both Collin and Michelle are involved with the Make A Wish foundation. They help with fundraising and also volunteer their time as wish granters. He is an LSU fan, but if the Tigers aren’t playing he enjoys spending his weekends fishing.
