Purpose. Heart. Insight. That’s what Clayton looks for in every story. In an era of digital distractions, he keeps both eyes peeled for the hooks that enable him to connect with people. And then works them until there’s nothing left but the hot, bright truth. Every word he writes is a product of careful and deliberate planning. You’ll never find him writing for the sake of writing.
Finding this sense of connection extends to his personal passion—the ocean. As a surfer in the Pacific Northwest, staying in tune with nature requires planning, patience and an appreciation for rare moments of beauty. Take your eye off the horizon at the wrong moment, and you’ll miss it.
