Kogan was born in New York City to author and photographer Deborah Copaken Kogan and Russian-born child actor Paul Kogan.

He attended the Dalton School in New York City during which time he was the lead singer/guitarist in a band, Flake, which released a self-titled EP in 2008. He currently attends Northwestern University in Evanston where he is a Communication sophomore and a member of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity.[6]
