Collin Farmer

Managing Partner - If you look up the word “geek” in the dictionary, you won’t find a picture of Collin. The definition though is “an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity” which couldn’t describe him any more perfectly. Whether it’s music, movies, technology, or any other number of interests, Collin is a geek to the core. When he’s not spending time with his beautiful wife or son, Collin can often be found improving companies and their IT infrastructure at his day job. If he’s not there, find a computer or TV because you’re going to find him podcasting, researching new technology, playing video games, or watching either endless amounts of Chuck reruns or Star Wars.
