Cory is the son of Lee and Mary Bowersox and has three siblings, Catherine, Christian, and Carlin. Cory started in karate, but made the transition to diving at the age of 11. He now trains three to four hours a day, six days a week. During his time off, Cory enjoys hands-on projects and hopes to be a design engineer. He attends school in Austin, TX and loves Texas barbecue. In between dives, Cory gets in the zone by listening to music and focusing on slowing his heart rate. His favorite dive is a 407C, and he hopes to meet Elon Musk (founder of Tesla, PayPal) one day.
