Colin has made a habit of working with Katherine Phelps in recent years. He has stepped out for her in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Short and Sweet Festival, and cabarets at the Butterfly Club. And to reciprocate she has directed his play Two Todays, No Tomorrow in the Board Shorts Festival. After decades of being actor, writer, sound designer, director, AV creator, stage manager, props builder, newsletter editor, website designer, set builder and company committee member for local theatres.

Colin now regards himself as a professional performer. His roles have ranged from playing Santa Claus ("Melbourne's best," he says) to zombies, with the occasional serial killer thrown in. Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Neighbours, Bed of Roses, Rush and TV commercials have all used Colin's skills on television, but perhaps he is best known in medical circles. There he is one of Victoria's leading simulated patients—acting out "live" medical scenarios to doctors, students, physiotherapists, et al.
