Agent 003: Cody Gates

Agent 003: Cody Gates (he/him)
Codename: The Professor
Master of: The single entendre
Licensed to: Have ennui
Can boast: That he once said “contesserate” and meant it

Agent 003 provides full support to his fellow crack agents, separating the wheat from the chaff. Though coaxing him from behind his books can prove a challenge, he can edit, compose, design, write and proofread, but most often lends his talents to idea generation and copywriting. In other words, The Professor excels at finding the right word, right now. A published poet, Agent 003 can be found teaching poetry and composition at University of California, Berkeley.

The Professor holds a B.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Redlands, as well as an M.F.A. in Poetry from Saint Mary’s College of California. He was previously production manager of the Claremont Courier and a very unhappy employee of the Los Angeles Times.
