He was born in Barfield, the youngest of three brothers who spent a majority of the time picking on him. In elementary school, he spent most of the time hanging out with his slightly older brother, Chris, and the two of them became very close. He also showed a lot of interest in sports, and on weekends he would go out to national parks with his dad and older brothers, seeing as his dad was a park ranger. Both Connor and his older brother Craig were the only ones who wanted to do something related to this, with Craig getting a job as a park ranger, and Connor deciding to work towards becoming an environmental lawyer.
In 2008, after becoming fairly popular in high school, he met Lauren in Barfield, and after she initially turned him down, while she was out with her parents, the two of them became friends, and Connor eventually asked her out again, and this time she said yes, although they kept it secret from Lauren's parents for as long as they could. He became fairly close to Paige at this time, seeing as she was a friend of Lauren's. After graduating high school, he, Lauren and Paige made plans to go to Lebeaux Univeristy together and rent an apartment nearby. In 2011, he and Lauren had a serious argument, which led to them taking a break from their relationship for a week, when Lauren slept with Jaime, something Connor didn't find out about for another three years. Shortly after they got back together, Jaime moved in across the hall and Connor and Jaime became almost instant friends. The two of them have become best friends since then.
In May 2014, Connor found out about the affair between Lauren and Jaime, and he became annoyed at both Lauren and Jaime, not for doing it, but for not having the guts to tell him about it. He went to live with his brother for about a week while he thought over things, although he did come back in between to help Paige deal with her father visiting like he promised to. He eventually made up with Jaime and revealed to him that he'd been planning to propose to Lauren for their six year anniversary on May 15, 2014. Connor then decided that he couldn't wait and proposed to Lauren after resolving their argument.
After graduating university, Connor worked on getting a job as a lawyer, and after his first interview fell through, he got a call from the company he applied for, telling them that they had a better position opening up for him in a month.
