Working on the drilling rigs for two years after getting his high school diploma, he quickly realised he found his calling, Kody bought a farm with his profits from the rig and soon realized that this is the life he was going to live (oil industry & farm). After working the rigs he started sales for Smith International (2 Years) and then Guardian Inspection (10 Years). M&R Safety was started as Kody saw a need for better fire suppression on the rigs. He then hired a good group of heavy equipment operators, bought some top of the line Excavators and he now manages one of the best invert management systems in the Peace Country. Kody visits all of the rigs on a regular basis in which M&R Safety has equipment and operators working on. Kody promises a safe, personal and positive working relationship. Kody farms 2750 Acres of land, and is heavily involved with 4-H, MS Society, and Minor hockey. Kody is the father of two children and resides near Grande Prairie.
