Colin IRL (In Real Life)
When he’s not working to ensure his clients can sleep worry-free, Colin can be found outdoors twice a week in all weathers, playing 5-a-side soccer (not life or death – it’s more important than that, as someone once said).  Otherwise, he’ll be at home or socialising with friends.  He also admits to dreams of winning the lotto.
