Cody is in his twenties and lives in Washburn, Wisconsin. When asked what his disability is, his response is “nothing!” although he knows he has autism. He just doesn’t let that stop him. Cody lives with his parents and two dogs by Lake Superior. He has a brother and sister-in-law who acquired masters degrees in speech pathology and work in southern Wisconsin.
“I played the piano, drums and guitar in school. At home I play the drums and electric keyboard. I love to dance to my favorite music, classic rock and country. I have been an artist all my life using pencil, watercolor and acrylic paint to create pieces that are transportation related.
Cody is skilled in fixing mechanical things with his dad. He enjoys driving ATVs, boating, fishing and snowmobiling. He helps his parents around the house, is learning to cook, and has a great job in the community.
Cody enjoys taking art classes with Sara Balbin, exhibiting and selling his art at See My Art, Inc. events.
