Meet Cody


Born and raised in memphis, tennessee

I was born in Memphis in 1985 (that’s 33). My grandfather opened a furniture and appliance store on Beale Street in the 1960s and later moved his business to Frayser. My dad took over the family automotive business eventually, so I grew up “working” from a very young age. An entrepreneurial spirit and tough work-ethic were instilled in me early.

After the election of Mayor Strickland in 2015, I was selected to serve on his Transition Team. It was then my passion for public service shifted into high gear. I began thinking about Memphis differently, wondering what it might be like if everyone pitched in and did their part. I’ve worked hard to improve my own neighborhood. I have been elected twice as Vice President of the East Buntyn Historic District Neighborhood Association and received the HARC Angel Community Service Award in 2018.

I live near The University of Memphis with my wife, Lydia, and our four-year-old son, Ellis. Go Tigers!

Ready to serve memphis

I am proud to serve as University District Development Officer at The University of Memphis where I oversee economic development in seven neighborhoods, serve as Executive Director of the University Neighborhoods Development Corporation, and manage the $21,000,000 Highland Revitalization TIF. In this role, I coordinate multiple public infrastructure improvement projects, working daily with general contractors, engineers, and architects.

In 2019, my goal is to be elected to serve Memphis as a City Council member for Super District 9. I’d like to take my passion for public service, my tenacious work ethic, and my love for Memphis to City Hall.

My family, Lydia and Ellis
