Show Host

Colleen is a freelance multimedia journalist based in New York City. She started her career at TV news channel NY1, covering breaking news and events including Hurricane Sandy, local elections, and NY Fashion Week. Her freelance work has taken her from the jungles of Borneo to the deserts of Jordan, and she is always dreaming of her next adventure. 

  • Loves trying new foods but could also happily eat grilled cheese every single day.
  • Has a pet rabbit named Jean Claude (so don’t you dare try to serve her one for dinner!)
  • Has traveled to more than 20 countries. Some of her coolest adventures? Paragliding in Nepal, spending a night on an uninhabited island in Thailand, and scuba diving in Borneo.
