The blend of creative thinking, solving puzzles, collaborating with exceptional team members, and playing with ‘really cool tinker toys’ is what Colin enjoys most about being a mechanical engineer at IDS. Colin came to IDS in July of 2019 where he has worked as a licensed Mechanical Engineer with an expertise in building automation systems. Colin is now the lead mechanical system controls design engineer.  Along with his passion for Mechanical Engineering, Colin spent a lot of his time traveling around Michigan and the Midwest playing the electric fiddle and guitar with rock bands. Colin now has a band with his daughter and two sons named “The Murphatonians’. Two of Colin’s strongest attributes are being detail oriented and always striving to get it right the first time. Colin’s significant impact on sustainability within the healthcare market awarded him the Hometown Hero award from the MHA Michigan Green Healthcare Committee.
