Actor Colin Michael Day teamed up with his college friend to produce the film, "The Loneliest Road in America," which screened at several film festivals, earning a Bronze medal at the Park City Film Music Festival. Though he was producer, Day auditioned for the lead role of Jamie, a young Coloradan growing disillusioned with himself as he and two friends take a road trip to visit their friend in California. "I'm glad the role wasn't handed to me," he explains, explaining that working for the role made the result that much more satisfying. His work ethic and determination have always been present. At the University of Denver, he was member of the tennis team and a business major before he took an acting class, and eventually changed his direction from athlete to artist. With support from his family and encouragement from teachers, he changed his major and studied abroad in Australia for a year.

Following graduation in the states, Day and filmmaker, Mardana Mayginnes, made their own trek form Colorado to Los Angeles, where not willing to wait for their big break, they formed connections through work and friends to put together "The Loneliest Road in America." Since finishing the film, Day has appeared on the L.A. stage in sold-out runs of "Love Bites," and the acclaimed "Block Nine," which won LA Weekly awards for Best Production of the Year, and Best Comedy Direction.

A veteran world traveler – his adventures range from the World Cup in Europe to backpacking in the Australian outback – Colin continues to pursue his acting career while making the most of his opportunities, wherever he may find them.
