Cody grew up as one of five siblings in Pittsville, WI, the geographic center of Wisconsin and received his Political Science degree from Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM). Directly before he worked at Hatch, he was a chef. Before that, he owned a language consultancy business helping major television and movie studios give context to their close captioning from English to their native languages. He originally applied for Hatch while he was overseas with the Army. He has recently retired from the Army and continues to be an incredible leader within our company.

He and his wife, Jenna, have two kids, James and Molly along with two cats, Tucker and Lester. When he comes across some spare time, he enjoys woodworking, martial arts and listening to music. If you ever want to have a fascinating conversation about the different colors of noise, he is your guy!

His “WHY” can be summed up by reading: 1 Thessalonians 4:11-14. 

Fun Fact: “I think words are important and I really enjoy etymology so here’s a soapbox – buckle up! One of my favorite phrases is “Abracadabra”. Abracadabra’s origin is unknown and highly contested but is often attributed to both Armaic language and ancient Hebrew. There was a lot of language borrowing between ancient Hebrew and Armaic. The Armaic word “abra” (or in Hebrew “avra”) means “I will create”. “Cadabra” in Armaic roughly translates to “as is spoken” and is often written as “kedavra.” Therefore, one of the most agreed upon translations of the word “Abracadabra” is the phrase” As I speak, so I create” or, alternatively, “Create as I speak.” This is why, in the modern context, we see it used as a magic word. As I speak, I create a white rabbit in this empty hat. Abra-cadabra!

A fun juxtaposition you might know is the opposite – “to destroy” – though I wouldn’t speak it out loud unless you want a visit from the Ministry of Magic (you’re welcome, Harry Potter fans). The Armaic for “to destroy” is “Avada” which is derived from the Hebrew word “avad”. So to “destroy as I speak” would be Avada Keda… nevermind…”
