Colin Crist

Project Manager

After graduating from Penn State in 2016 with a Civil Engineering degree, Colin began his career working for a large general contractor in the commercial construction industry in Baltimore, Maryland. Fueled by his passion for sustainability, Colin became a LEED Accredited Professional and supported his team in completing multiple LEED Certified projects in the Baltimore area.

After visiting Colorado for a ski trip, Colin felt drawn to move west and finally made the leap in 2021. Landing a position as a project manager with Cottonwood, Colin is excited to see what the residential construction industry has to offer. So far, he has learned something new every day, with his unique renovation projects always keeping him on his toes.

In his free time, Colin spends as much time outdoors as possible. Depending on the season, you can usually find him on the ski slopes or a golf course.
