Crew Bio: Cody Steavens

Cody Steavens started his health and safety interests within an Explorer’s Club in high school. “I was interested in the Fire Service side.” He soon became part of his local CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Dive Team. “When I was old enough I signed up as a volunteer at my local Fire Department, and they later asked if I wanted a job there. Life moved me to better opportunities, but I miss working for the Fire Department all the time.” Truly, Cody openly wishes he could be a firetruck.

Steavens joined UsagiMed in 2014, returning annually for the Anime Weekend Atlanta events. He says, “I believe mental health is just as important as physical health but it’s often neglected. That’s why I like making people laugh and smile. If my being silly can help someone forget about their problems even for a minute then it’s not silly.”

Cody is very silly, and we love him for it. When he’s not working, Cody is actually into farming, gardening, and SCUBA diving (though not currently all at the same time).  He’s also seriously into cooking and photography.  And when he’s not doing that, you might find Cody getting into some Metal Gear Solid or Overwatch. “I also love watching Achievement Hunter on YouTube, and I enjoy a good action movie. Tom Clancy is one of my favorite authors.”
