Colton was born and raised in the small town of Deering, New Hampshire. During his time in New Hampshire, he enjoyed snow activities like snowboarding, and snowmobiling. Still to this day he takes an annual trip with his father to snowmobile where he grew up. In 2014, Colton and his family moved to Charleston in pursuit of better opportunities and more sunshine.
He started school in South Carolina as a freshman at Wando High School. He immediately joined the football team and shortly after that, he began to play rugby. His other free time during high school consisted of Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s participation, youth group leadership, hunting, and fishing. After high school, Colton spent two years at Trident Technical College where he would earn his Associates Degree.
Fall of 2019 Colton left for Army Basic Training for two months. He then came home for two weeks and left for a six-month Air Traffic Controller School at Fort Rucker, Alabama. He graduated May of 2020 as the top performing soldier in his class. Upon returning home, he now serves at the Citadel once a month as a National Guardsman. Colton is currently completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management at Charleston Southern University. He has high hopes of becoming an Air Traffic Controller and eventually supervising a facility.
Colton has been dating his best friend, Zoe, since 2017 and recently proposed to her. They are planning a fall wedding in 2022. They both enjoy hunting together and going on the boat often. He believes that he is overly blessed to be a team player in a small business where he can impact the lives of others through simple gestures. He is told by other team members that his love language is acts of service and that is very true. He has a constant drive to please others and we are so grateful to have him as part of our Sweet Julep’s family!
