Jacob Bailey was born on the outskirts of Indianapolis, Indiana and has lived there his whole life. He is currently a high school senior enrolled in the International School of Indiana. Jacob found his passion for writing when he was in sixth grade, creating poetry and small stories before writing his own short story book in 2014.
Though he lives in rural Indiana, Jacob works in Maine during the summer at an all-boys summer camp in Wiscasset, where he works with kids to teach them the values of nature and takes them on week-long wilderness trips, where Jacob specializes in taking kids open-ocean kayaking and hiking.
Jacob wishes someday to become a National Geographic photographer thanks to his love of nature and someday hike the Appalachian trail.
