Colton was born and raised in the heart of West Texas, Midland. He moved out to Austin in 2012 to attend The University of Texas, where he graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s in Economics. Deciding to stay in Austin, Colton took an internship with a local church’s Kids Ministry where he met his now wife Lauren.
Before joining Side by Side Kids, Colton took a whirl at the sales and marketing industry of Austin. Seeking something more, he left that world and the Lord led him to Side by Side Kids. Colton has a passion for serving and teaching youth and desires to see others grow in their faithfulness to Jesus and service to others.
Outside of work, Colton serves in the Kids Ministry at the Austin Stone Community Church alongside his wife. He has a huge love of sports and enjoys playing and watching any chance he gets!
