About me.

My name is Cody and I like to make things.

This is me

Here's who I am.

As you’ve probably seen at least twice now, my name is Cody Capella. And yes, I do like to make things. I’m a photographer, designer, and web developer who calls Northern California home. I’m an avid nordic skier, tennis-er, and adventurer. I also seem to get a lot bolder when I have my camera in hand. Those I care about are really important to me, so family and friends are big deals. I also love to read and write, bike, and hike, and I am starting to learn to love running, too.

I firmly believe in living a life that I believe is worthwhile, if that makes any sense at all. I also do some charity work and try to get out in the community pretty frequently too. When I’m not down at Cal Poly, I’m usually out adventuring or skiing. Or getting coffee.

Here’s what I know.

I’m a Northern California transplant to California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly), San Luis Obispo down on the central coast. I’m currently in my first year majoring in computer science with a (hopeful) minor in photography and (also hopefully) something else like history or English, too. As of now, I hope to pursue further study either in computer science or in history and English after graduation. Education is extremely important to me, so I firmly believe in continuing it as a lifelong student, whether I’m enrolled at an institution or not.

I had a really incredible time in high school, so I write a lot about my views on the K-12 education system here in California. I also believe in transparency with my education, so I’ve put my high school information up on here as well.

Lastly, I keep pretty good track of what else I’ve picked up, or at least I try to. So you can find my reading list, as well as lists of courses I’ve taken from some really great providers online like Lynda and Treehouse, following.

Here’s what I do.

I take pictures, design things, and make websites. You can view examples of my previous work (both personal projects and projects for clients) in my portfolio. I always love taking on new projects and helping people turn their ideas into something that’s real, so if you’d like to talk to me about a project, feel free to drop me a line. You can also view a couple of my resumes, as well as my freelance introductory documents (trust me, they’re a lot less boring than the name implies) which offer a sample of my work, my mission statement, and some information on typical rates.

If you’re curious as to what I’m reading about, writing about, thinking about, and working on at this given moment, then you might want to check out my blog. I also have a blog exclusively for my photography here.
