Cody grew up in a small town in rural Wisconsin called Pittsville. “It’s the geographic center of Wisconsin and a great place to call home.”

He is one of six children, three brothers and three sisters. “I have the best parents in the world.”

Cody enjoys woodworking, and particularly, working on guitars and building furniture. Outside of that, he enjoy reading and studying foreign language.

“My why is to alleviate suffering. I firmly believe that my life has purpose and that purpose is to use my given talents, experiences, and compassion to combat suffering in the communities I belong to and the larger world.”
