Changing the world one playground at a time
Born and raised in Marin County, California,Cody is convinced that the secret to building a better world for all is building better playgrounds. Cody and his wife April live in Portland with their daughters Harper and Lennon. Due to eight-year- old Harper’s unique needs, the couple launched “Harper’s Playground,” a passion project that has spurred a movement to design and build the city’s first inclusive playground, one that adapts to the needs of children of all abilities.
