Swanson graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing, during which time he was a three-year starter for the Trojan’s football team. Swanson’s athletic ability extends beyond college football as he is also a Black Belt in MooYea-Do Karate.

In his spare time, Swanson is a philanthropist for Light the Night, a fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma Research, for which he served as team captain the last four years. He was also involved with Swim with Mike, a charity fundraiser for handicapped children, and was a volunteer for the Special Olympics.
