Following a successful high school career, Cole played collegiate tennis at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA until 2013.

As a coach, Cole had been teaching at the tennis center part-time for over 7 years until joining the U.S. State Department in 2016. During his time in the capital, Cole earned his PTR certification and taught juniors part-time in Arlington, VA for FirstServe Tennis, one of the beltway’s premier junior organizations. After 2 years of working in Washington D.C, Cole returned to Williamsburg to earn his Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from William & Mary’s Raymond A. Mason School of Business. Between classes, Cole still enjoys being an active part-time coach alongside coworkers and friends he’s worked with off-and-on for years.
