Snore Doumbia was born in Oakland, California. Both of his parents are from Mali, West Africa and when he was about 1 years old, his family moved to Denver, Colorado. From his early life he knew he wanted to create films. His love for horror films grew into love for all films in middle school and strengthened even more during high school where he participated in various art projects and performed volunteer work.

Throughout high school, Snore joined as many clubs as possible to be active in the community. His love for art grew and after senior year he went through the challenge of scoliosis surgery, but with the unlimited support from his mother, he went on to attend Columbia College Chicago for film producing, where he is expected to graduate in the fall of 2020.
