As Senior Political Strategist at Issue One, Weston is focused on bringing people together around non-partisan reform solutions that would restore confidence in government. He also is the creator and host of the popular podcast "Swamp Stories," which is rated 4.9/5 on Apple Podcasts.

After years working with startup companies, Weston co-founded one of the best known venture capital funds in the South. Having nearly unseated his incumbent member of Congress at a 27 years old in a Republican primary in 2014, Weston gravitated back to politics upon selling his interest in the Tennessee-based fund he started.

Weston has also served as an advisor to high growth companies ranging from e-commerce to school security.

Weston lives in Chattanooga, Tenn. with his wife, Shelby, and their three children, River, 5, Griffin, 3, and Aldridge, 1. In 2019, he was appointed to the Tennessee Board of Regents by Governor Bill Lee.
