Colin is the current Education Manager at the Multnomah Whiskey Library in Portland, OR. He is a Baltimore native who left the nest in 2005 to work in winemaking and distilling in Portland and the surrounding Willamette Valley. After more than a decade in production including three years as Head Distiller at House Spirits Distillery, he opened Oso Market + Bar - a tapas-style bar featuring organic and biodynamic wines and craft cocktails. After three years as an owner, he sold the business and landed with the Multnomah Whiskey Library soon after to run its education program and co-manage its collection of over 1,900 spirits from around the globe. Colin lives in North Portland with his wife, Holly, their pit bull, Turtle, and a basement full of bicycles.
