Corey was born and raised in Miami, Florida and took to art and visual design at a young age. It led to a passion, and then a profession in conjunction with web development.

He attended UCF's Digital Media program for his bachelor's degree and merged it with Computer Science to become a junior full-stack developer. Along the way, he was given the internship opportunity of a lifetime at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. At JPL, he worked for the Mars Program Office, assisting with logistical and mission planning software for Mars missions. He learned how to design visualizations for complicated data and working on large-scale software systems.

Upon graduating UCF, his career kept him closer to home: he started working for his alma mater at the Center for Distributed Learning, joining a talented team dedicated to improving online learning at UCF and across Florida.
