Colin grew up on the south shore of Long Island, New York and has a degree in music. Although music is his passion, boats are his life. He started working as a deckhand when he was 15 years old and was the Ferry/Port Captain in charge of all the comings and goings of all the Fire Island ferries. He is a quintessential New York Italian Momma’s boy, who has a very strong connection to his friends and family and is known for his infectious sense of humor. Since his time on Below Deck Mediterranean, he realized how much he loved the entertainment business and started a podcast Radio Check with Colin Macy-O’Toole, where he interviews fellow Below Deck cast members.
