Born in South LA to an African American father with roots from Compton by way of Arkansas and a mother from Stann Creek, Belize, Clayton is a proud alum of Washington Prep High. He started to become more politically minded through his involvement in policy debate with the LA Metro Debate League (which he still volunteers for). His political awareness prompted him to get involved in student groups such as the Afrikan Student Union and Cultural Affairs at UCLA. Before joining the team, Clayton worked for a fundraising management company that primarily served colleges and universities around the country. Clayton jumped at the opportunity use merge his passion for his neighborhood and his skillset by working at Community Coalition.
Fun Facts: Clay is a visual artist and a huge fan of DC Animation (not to be confused with the DCEU). Jason Todd and Barbara Gordon are his two favorite DC characters.
