Born in northern Minnesota, Snow went to university to study nursing. He was set to go to grad school to pursue his desire to become a doctor, with a focus on pathology. After graduating from university he took a one year sabbatical before grad school to go backpacking through Europe and Russia where he eventually ended up on the wrong side of the border of the Black Mountains alongside Chernarus. He is skilled with medical equipment and wont allow others to stop him from helping those who need and deserve help. He has a healthy fear of guns, but isn't afraid to use one if his life is in risk.
