Clayton gained a passion for travel and language learning when on a trip to France and Spain with his high school in 2010. This love took him to Penn State University where he studied Arabic, comparative literature, French, and Spanish. Upon graduating in 2017 with his Master's, he went to France to teach English for a year. He's currently working on his Ph. D. in comparative literature at UCLA. He's also extremely happy to be spreading his passion for language, culture, and literature to students at Fusion!
Originally from Pennsylvania, Clayton spends as much time as possible outside soaking up the southern California sun! He enjoys hiking, walking around neighborhoods in Los Angeles, and reading on the beach. He also likes watching movies, crafting, playing games with friends, and cooking. When he has the time, he travels to explore new cultures and places.
