Trevor Schneider

Hailing from the streets of Bellaire, Texas, Trevor Schneider began writing at a young age as a means of procrastination and self-expression. Though no longer 4 foot 3 or sporting a mullet, this early inclination towards the written word never quite left him—rather, it blossomed, leading to years of rough drafts, oxford commas, and writers’ block. A graduate of Strake Jesuit high school, he is now an English major at The College of William & Mary in Virginia. Trevor can usually be found editing his friend’s essays and writing melodramatic thinkpieces about politics and the music industry.
