“Snow was born in Berea, Kentucky and raised in Cincinnati. After graduating from Princeton High School in Sharonville, Ohio, Snow in 1977 obtained his Bachelor of Arts in philosophy from Davidson College, North Carolina and studied philosophy and economics at the University of Chicago during the 1978-79 academic year. He taught physics and East African Geography in Kenya, and in Cincinnati has done substitute teaching in everything from calculus to seventh-grade art class. He also worked as an advocate for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled in North Carolina.

“He is an avid musician. He plays flute, alto flute, soprano sax, alto sax, tenor sax and guitar and belongs to a cover band, Beats Workin’, which features fellow Washington-area professionals.

“In 1987, he married Jill Ellen Walker. They have a son and two daughters and a constantly shifting band of domestic animals, which currently includes three dogs, a cat and three guinea pigs. The Snows live in Virginia.”
