As a social media specialist, Clayton is Indiana University’s representative in all things social—through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and the latest emerging platforms, he keeps IU’s hundreds of thousands of followers engaged, entertained, and informed about what’s happening across IU campuses.

Before joining IU Communications, Clayton ran the social media accounts at the Center for Biological Diversity, a Tucson, Arizona-based environmental organization dedicated to protecting endangered species and wild places. Clayton has a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and communications from Southwestern University and a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Arizona. A native Texan, Clayton wandered around a bit before landing in Bloomington. He’s been an extra in movies in Austin, a Peace Corps volunteer in China, a reporter in both Beijing and Costa Rica, and a cable tech in Arizona.

When he’s not replying to tweets, finding the perfect shot for Instagram, or optimizing Facebook ads, Clayton spends his time rock climbing, fishing from his kayak, trail running with his dog, and exploring Indiana with his wife, Katie.

I love connecting with people, telling stories, and building community. Luckily, that’s what I get to do every day.
