Born on Cape Cod, raised in northern New Jersey, I was exposed to the arts from a young age. My mother a jeweler, and father a cabinetmaker, design and creativity were always present in the Bischoff household. As a pre-teen, I used to steal my father's camera and shoot photographs of my natural surroundings. In June 2013 at the age of 18, I was published by National Geographic's Your Shot, of which awakened me to the belief that maybe my hobby of capturing images had more to it than I'd imagined. In 2016, I graduated from St. Lawrence University with honors studying Printmaking, Photography and Psychology. Today, I reside in Jackson, Wyoming where I am growing my passions for the arts and adventure.
