Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Colton Greganti received a Bachelor of Arts in English: Language and Literature and Philosophy from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2018. After receiving his undergraduate degrees, he worked as an educator and spent a year teaching English as a second language in South Korea.
