Born into a family of architects and designers on the west coast, Cody began building Lego houses without the paper instructions at the age of 3. 

She moved to China after college to learn the language and culture. Fascinated by the rapid pre and post Olympic development, she decided to stick around for half a decade.

Her time in the developing world taught her the importance of clean environment and good design. Thoughtless construction was what motivated her to return to school for a master degree and pursue a career in architecture and design.

Cody is a New York based designer who is also an avid food-eater and a photography enthusiast.
