Collin is the IT & Security Director for UME Preparatory Academy. He has nearly 20 years of experience in IT and security support in public education and the corporate world. He has worn many hats in the IT realm, ranging anywhere from heading up his school’s Google Suite for Education systems to running network cable through a 40-foot high ceiling in a 100 degree warehouse. He also has experience in security, working with surveillance cameras, keycard access systems, coordinating with security officers and law enforcement, as well as emergency operations logistics and support. When his predecessor at UME retired, Collin stepped in at the literal ground level of construction of UME’s new secondary school at their Dallas campus, and gained valuable knowledge and experience while coordinating with school administration, the architects, the GC, and subcontractors from just about every profession necessary for such an endeavor. An avid Star Wars geek, weather nerd, and cellist, he is somehow married and has two beautiful daughters.
