Collin was born on a beautiful day in May, with Apple trees blooming unseasonably early, perhaps a blessed omen for this new addition to the world.
He spent his youth foraging in forests, learning to hunt squirrels and rabbits to survive, emerging into young adulthood with 2 surviving brothers (from an original 19 siblings). This sense of adventure and survival led him soon far from home and experiencing life to the fullest. He spent time as a mercenary in various theaters of war before shifting to a more peaceful period of quite reflection in a buddist monestary in Thailand. From there he ventured into Papau New Guinea where after a near death experience on a spit above an open fire, he returned home to seek new challenges closer to home. First landing in Ottawa he began driving a taxi cab but after a torrid affair with a prime ministers wife he migrated further west, stopping in Manitoba to help fill sand bags for the rising Red river where he met a traveling salesman selling zip ties. He proved an excellent salesman and soon had acquired millions in earning. He took that money and invested his money a company called Enron hoping to build on his wealth but in turn lost it all. As he survived on the streets of Winnipeg he befriended a cat named Biscuit and a dog named Wiggles that fanned in interest in helping animals. Through contacts in the underground mob scene he was able to acquire fake university credentials and after a brilliant interview managed to land a seat at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. He thrived in this environment of 80% women and ended up siring 7 children in the process. Once graduating with the highest marks ever seen at the school he turned down multiple offers at prestigious universities across the world to take on a position at a humble mixed animal practice in Westlock.
