Born in Paris, Texas, Bachman studied architectural studies and art history at Connecticut College. He has worked with both architects and interior designers in residential and commercial spaces, including hospitality projects, private homes, showrooms and show houses. He has lived in London, Santa Fe, and New York, which has enriched his knowledge of the industry. He brings an interest in design that is highly refined but never too studied, luxurious but never fussy.  

In 2013, Bachman partnered with Lora Appleton in creating the children's design gallery, kinder MODERN. They launched the company the inaugural year for the Collective Design Fair in New York City. They have been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Traditional Home, and Vogue to name a few.

In the fall of 2012, he was a designer for the late Albert Hadley's charity event  'Rooms with a View' in Southport, Connecticut.  He has also been featured on and he was nominated as a Young Gun semifinalist in 2013. 

Bachman lives and works in New York City.
