After graduating from Springbank Community High School, the now-famous Internet personality went on to study at Duke University. During his time spent there, he was a member of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity. His education ended back in 2012, with a degree in science.
He had several programming jobs. He stated that he grew bored with them very quickly. So, Cody Ko decided to drop it all and go on a backpacking trip of Southern Asia with his close friend.
After blowing off some steam in Asia, he went back to work, and after around a year, when his YouTube income became stable, he quit his job to focus on making videos and hosting podcasts as an all-time job.
Just like Liza Koshy, Lele Pons, or David Dobrik, Cody Ko also posted his first videos on Vine, which is no longer active.

He took his podcast live, going on a tour across the country.
He even tried out making music, and it proved to be very well: “I was making fun of Jake Paul’s song in a video two years ago. And I was like, ‘I think I can make a better song than this.’ It was kind of like a challenge. So, I made this awful beat and I brought Noel over to rap over it. So, we made this really stupid song. And it wasn’t better than Jake’s song. But it was the first beat I made and it was really cool. I always wanted to make music from scratch. And I just got more and more into it. It’s something that I’ve been pursuing, in the background, for a while.”
