Personal: Clayton began speed skating in 2011 inspired by his sports idol Jeff Simon, but his interests range far and wide. He loves everything about cars from driving them to fixing them to just talking about them. He loves to cook pasta and loves any variation of pasta while also playing the guitar and bass. His favorite mantra is to “Take advantage of every day.”
