Cody is in his early 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 four dogs by Lake Superior. He has a brother studying speech pathology in graduate school in Minneapolis.
“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. I won an award in 2010 at the M&I Art Show.”
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 is interested in taking more art classes and showing and selling his art.
