Colton led the development of the Interview & Interrogation (I&I) training for the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG) which is recognized as breaking the mold for interviewing training and bringing science into the art of interviewing. This was done in conjunction with the U.S. Intelligence Community but transfers perfectly into cutting-edge training and fact-finding systems for almost any organization. While with the HIG, Colton taught the HIG I&I courses to thousands of members of the U.S. Intelligence Community as well as developing training programs for some of the U.S.’s premier law enforcement agencies and many of our foreign partners.
Through his 22 year career as an FBI Special Agent, Colton conducted thousands of interviews and led a variety of specialty teams in high-pressure, high-stakes settings domestically and internationally, including in the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa. Colton brings a wealth of knowledge and experience relating to counterterrorism, counterintelligence, criminal matters, and the business world to every group he works with.
Colton is passionate about interviewing and about using the most recent science to work with your teams to help them become the absolute best they can be at their craft. Colton is a certified coach and brings a coaching ethos to working with your teams to fulfill their best potential. Colton has an M.A. from the University of Chicago and undergraduate degree from University of California, Davis.
