Colin was born and raised in Woodbridge on the East Coast of Britain. He has strong interest in science and the natural world and studied for a BSc in Animal Behaviour at University of Wales, Aberystwyth. Upon realising not everyone shared his enthusiasm for the study of animal behavior he decided to become a science teacher. After teacher training at Sussex University, he gained employment in a secondary school in Newbury where he spent two years. For him Bhutan will be the biggest adventure he has ever had and is looking forward to meeting wonderful people and eating chillies for breakfast.
