From 2011-2014 Cody was working in NYC as a club promoter for some of the cities most elite venues. He spent years building relationships with doormen, security guards, management, as well as many others. So when his flame for art was reignited, connecting the dots was one of the easiest things he had to do up to that point. "I'm in here, watching these celebrities perform and host, night in and night out. I know in advance that they're going to be in attendance. Why not give back to the people that influence us all, while honing in on my skills as an artist? I've got nothing to lose."
Richard Wheeler, at the time was one of the doormen at Lavo, allowing Cody access to one of his most frequented clubs for these deliveries.
