Background and Interests

I am originally from Greers Ferry, Arkansas a small town about three hours west of Memphis and 1.5 hours north of Little Rock.  I have been married since May 2008 and my wife and I reside in the Little Italy neighborhood of Niagara Falls, New York.  In my spare time I like running, reading, live music, traveling, and economics.

Above is a picture of my finishing the Germantown Half Marathon in March 2009, my first race at that distance. 

I completed the Niagara Falls International Marathon October 21, 2012 (my first). I didn't do as well as I had aspired, but it was a definite learning experience.

I like to read fiction for the most part and always have some book going, my favorite authors are John Steinbeck, Albert Camus, Bret Ellis, Hunter S. Thompson, among numerous others.

Below is the announcement from a seminar presentation I gave at Universidad EAFIT in Medellin Colombia in June 2012. I thought the announcement that was made for the event was cool, it likely doesn't hurt that it's in spanish.

If you would like to find me on social media my linkedin account can be found here. I also have a twitter feed under @jaykody and can be seen below.
