Cody moved to NC in 2012 from Richmond Virginia when he finished up his Bachelor’s degree in Sculpture and Extended Media from VCU. While here in NC, Cody completed his Masters Degree in Fine Art from UNC Chapel Hill. While in grad school, he met his husband Max. They have two fuzzy toddlers together; one is a cat named Tommy and the other fuzz baby is Winnie, a neurotic beagle.  Cody has been providing child care throughout his academic pursuits. After grad school he found that his true passion is working with children. Cody loves teaching and learning from each of them. Exploring the world around us creatively, solving problems and navigating the importance of consent and respect for our own and others bodies and personal space, makes coming to work everyday so worthwhile.
