Father of Six
The softer side of Jamin's personality is always on display when he's working with kids, and he's got plenty of his own. With 6 Kids in 8 years, the Coller clan is whirlwind of love and crazy that you can read about on his wife's blog CrazyBlessedAdventures.com (or, as Jamin prefers, ButtLoadOfKids.com).
When they're not on an outdoors adventure, the Collers can be found jumping on the trampoline, baking some new experimental concoction, or playing their favorite board game: Disney's Scene It.
Public Speaker & Personal Counselor
As the headline speaker at conventions, seminars, and dozens of kids' camps, Jamin has developed a unique and engaging presentation style that shines through, especially when he's talking to young people.
These skills were further honed in a new direction as Jamin served several years as the director of the Sacramento Juvenile Drug Court, where he counseled, tested, and educated youth who had been arrested with substance abuse charges.
Creator, Innovator, Entrepreneur
Unable to leave a broken system alone, Jamin is always hatching new plans and piloting projects to fix, replace, or create tools that are missing, inefficient and lacking-quality.
