A genuine life-long learner, Colin dedicated his adult life to a long and distinguished academic career. He pursued undergraduate and graduate studies in biological and general sciences at New Mexico Tech before earning his doctoral and medical degrees at the University of New Mexico. As a resident in dermatology, he distinguished himself for surgical skill as well as attentive and sympathetic care for his patients. While in medical school, Colin helped to found Life Biosciences, an Albuquerque-based biotechnology firm. Despite his academic and professional obligations, Colin maintained an enthusiastic interest in physical fitness, especially through football, rugby, and weightlifting. Most importantly, Colin was a loving husband and father. His greatest happiness and deepest devotion dwelled in Pamela, his wife of sixteen years, and his sons Alexander, Christopher, and Thomas.
