Tell us a bit about yourself!
My name is Colin Reid and I’ve been with Clarus/2H since 2013 when I graduated from college. I studied aerospace engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I’m originally from Pittsburgh, PA, but have also lived in Kansas City, MO and now Houston. I guess there are a lot of things that I’d consider hobbies of mine, but most of my time is spent playing Ultimate Frisbee. I play for the Space City Ultimate club here in Houston and played for the U of I in college.
What 3 words describe you best?
Driven, Witty, Easy Going
What do you do at Clarus?
I’ve been fortunate and have experience in a wide array of the work that Clarus does. Whether it is developing subsea inspections, completing asset risk assessments, or management of a variety of different anomalies/observations I have been lucky to get hands on with all of it.
Recently, I have supported the development of our online integrity management portal, iCUE.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Clarus?
The culture at Clarus is second to none. Not only do we have fun while working with each other, but team buildings and Friday pub are a great way to build our company culture.
What’s your most memorable Clarus moment?
All of it? The evening after we had our “official” announcement with our 2H office mates sticks out in my mind because that is when I realized we were really separate from 2H and on our own.
Tell us a bit about life outside work.
I spend a ton of time playing Ultimate Frisbee or working out to get better at Ultimate. I love to travel and have been able to visit a new country each of the past two years and I’m already planning where I’ll go in 2016. I am also looking into getting my pilot’s license as it has always been a dream of mine.
I’m SCUBA certified and have dived the Great Barrier Reef.
