Hi, I'm Clay

Hi, I'm Clay

I was born in 1991, I'm a goofy, pop culture obsessed scorpio that tends to not take life too seriously. I grew up following in my dad's footsteps of entrepreneurship & I've always had a passion for sleeping in.

Some of you may recognize me from an episode of Pingu when I was 11 (this rlly happened ask me about it) BUT FOR REAL, I have been the proud owner of 205 for nearly 5 years.

It's been quite the journey building on the vision behind Studio 205 and it's been nothing short of an honour. I love seeing your faces pop in and enjoy the curation & all the vibes. Truly, I just like being creative and making people happy - and I'm able to do both of those things through my little shop. I love what I do and it's all because of you!

Will ride this until the wheels fall off,
