Cooke Maroney was born on July 3, 1984, in Middlebury, Vermont, United States, to James Maroney and Suki Fredericks.
Cooke grew up with his younger sister, Annabelle, and attended a high school in Vermont.
His father, James Maroney, was once a prominent figure in the world of art and had also served as the Head of American Paintings at ‘Sotheby’s’ and ‘Christie’s.’
However, Cooke’s parents later decided to raise him amidst a rural setting and moved to Vermont in the late 1980s. They had their own farm, the ‘Oliver Hill Farm’ in Leicester, Vermont. James would initially divide his time between Manhattan and Vermont, but the family eventually settled in Vermont. They have now put up the farm on ‘Airbnb.’
Cooke later moved to New York, where he studied art history at the ‘New York University.’
