Schneider graduated from Canisius High School in Buffalo, New York, in 2015 and continued on to The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science in 2019.

Schneider then returned home to Western New York and began studying law at the University at Buffalo School of Law. During his law school career, he was exposed to the field of municipal law while working as a law clerk for an attorney that represents various municipalities in the area. Through this experience, Schneider worked on various projects, including researching the issue many municipalities face regarding how to integrate the increasing amount of wireless technology and telecommunication equipment within their communities. Additionally, in 2021 Schneider ran for a seat on his local town board and presently serves as a liaison for his community as the Chairman of the West Falls Advisory Committee. He was also recently elected Fire Commissioner of the Aurora Colden Fire District #6.
After law school, Schneider hopes to channel his passion and energy toward serving his community by advocating for the expansion of the wireless industry to reach individuals in underserved areas in order to help bridge the digital divide.
