Michigan native Collins studied Film at Full Sail University but discovered his passion for editing in his teen years by shooting and editing videos for his high school’s news program while simultaneously joining forces with neighborhood kids to create video montages from gaming highlights. After attaining a B.A. in Film, he landed an assistant editor position for Renaissance Television and Film, and then for 3008. Throughout his time as an assistant editor, he collaborated with premium agencies on major projects including multiple Super Bowl Ads and international productions in Vancouver and Barcelona. In the midst of many editing endeavors, Collins also served as voiceover talent in spots for Jeep, Twin Peaks, Caliber Collisions and Funyuns. After two short years, Collins was promoted to editor at 3008 where he worked on a diverse range of branded campaigns.
