Not one to ever sit still, Clay’s influence can see around town. From Bookish Coffee to West Oak Coffee, he is ever looking for ways in which he can be an active part of the community.
Clay has always been a man looking for an adventure or something to consume his efforts. He loves seeing ideas come to fruition. His adventurous nature led him to the University of Idaho where before graduating his college jobs included ski-lift attendant and white-water rapid guide. Upon being hired as an EMT Firefighter in Mesquite, he immediately began looking for opportunities to transfer to Denton, which ultimately happened. He currently is the owner and lead-roaster of Bookish Coffee and is a partner at the wildly popular West Oak Coffee Bar. He is married to Emily and has 2 sons and a beautiful daughter.
