Codey is CRY’s best executive producer of 2023. So far. Formerly working in production in Hollywood, Codey transitioned to commercial producing to expand his grasp on the realms between creative and business.
Codey’s story began in Virginia, followed by two de-Tours to Iraq, then on to LA, DC, ATL, NYC, LA again, Austin, TX, the Louisiana Bayou, and now continues on in Raleigh, NC.
He has that special sauce that elevates a project while putting together Moneyball productions.
