Clayton holds a Professional Bachelor of Architecture with a minor in Urban Studies from the Illinois Institute of Technology. His previous Architecture experience includes highly custom single family residences, corporate interiors, national retail roll-outs, and public art installations.

Clayton is driven by the opportunity that Architecture presents us to inspire change in peoples’ lives. He believes architects have a unique ability to explore and develop how communities can work, live, and identify themselves. Outside of his pursuits in architecture, he is an experimental filmmaker with work exploring spatial and urban representation in cinema.
