“When I first met Kody I thought he wore a toupee”
“My first impressions of Kody were pretty straight forward, he had one personality and complete lack of identity”
“His thirst for knowledge was very apparent in our first meeting, however upon our second meeting he seemed to have quenched that thirst because he never showed up.”
As you may have already inferred, Kody is curious and inquisitive. These traits were nurtured during his youth on the rural farmlands of Idaho, where he had cultivated a career of pop culture curiosities and film/television opinions.
Kody spent several years on the Chicago Improvisation scene and received an opportunity to chase his dreams in the golden city of Los Angeles. After 30 Days in Los Angeles, Kody realized that the technology didn’t exist to bring his dreams to life (Hot Ice Cream).
At that point, he began work in reality television and produced/acted in a high concept live action version of Futurama titled Fan-O-Rama, Kody’s portrayal of Fry garnered all kinds of reviews; many people felt the puppet acting opposite expressed more emotion. But Kody’s ability to bring the world to life by managing and creating a live action Futurama led to his future endeavors. He would go on to produce several independent projects and a show highlighting the film artifacts that defined the movies, Prop Culture by Disney+.
While producing for Disney, Kody would spend his time tracking down lost movie artifacts, crafting interesting moments to move the show’s host from point A to point B, and deciphering how these various artifacts came to be while telling the story of where they ended up. Bringing those moments to life helped create an interesting story versus, “It’s been in my closet.”
Currently, Kody spends his time with his incredible family and during the day works as the Gallery Director for Julien’s Auctions. He has also decided to not give up on that LA dream and works with co-host Jason DeBord to innovate several ways to rebirth… Hot Ice Cream.
