Raised in San Diego and influenced by his father’s commercial abalone diving career, Colton has had a deep love and respect for the ocean since a very young age. Beginning his career as a deckhand on a 72-foot Bertram yacht, Colton worked his way up through the industry on various super yachts in North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. After achieving his desired merchant mariner credential, Colton left yachting and created his own sport fishing charter company. After many successful years of fishing charters, Colton founded his own yacht management company, which he runs alongside Simon Yachts. In his free-time, Colton is an avid spearfisher, free diver, and best friend to his golden retriever, Milli.
