His science fiction and fantasy stories have been featured in the North Dakota Quarterly, Writer's Digest, and Asomov's. He started shifting toward journalism in college when he fell in love with a course on magazine writing. Cody began his freelancing career writing for High Ground Gaming where he wrote lists, news, and reviews. He has also made several unboxing/review videos for their YouTube Channel.

Education
