Bjorholm was born in 1986 and grew up in Tennessee. At age 13, he received his first bonsai tree. Within three months, however, it was dead. In 2001, he and his father, Tom Bjorholm, founded the Knoxville Bonsai Society. At age 16, Bjorholm visited Japan as part of a student group. There, he met bonsai master Keiichi Fujikawa. Before beginning a formal apprenticeship, Bjorholm studied with several bonsai professionals in the United States.

After graduating from college, in 2008, Bjorholm became an apprentice under Fujikawa at Kouka-en Nursery in Osaka. He apprenticed for six years before becoming certified as a bonsai professional by the Nippon Bonsai Association. Thereafter, he worked as an artist-in-residence at Kouka-en, making him Japan's first foreign-born working bonsai artist.
