CLAYTON B. HODGES is a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and is now based in Los Angeles. At ten years old, little Clay Hodges auditioned for a local production of Pinnochio and the Fire Eater. After getting the lead of Pinnochio, he never looked back. Fast forward a few years and Clayton now works nationwide (and internationally) as an actor, producer and teacher. He has toured nationally with several shows, at last count completing 13,000 highway miles all over the US.

He was the lead-actor, producer, managing director and co-founder of Elite Fighting Crew. Together with his collaborators, this now-defunct production company was the North American liaison for a major European touring production, forged a partnership with London's Guinness-Award winning Finborough Theatre and was featured on a NPR special on the NYC theatre community response to 9/11.

He currently teaches acting and public speaking skills to a variety of ages, all over the U.S., making major stops in NYC, LA and San Francisco.

He is an avid volunteer for NYU Tisch Alumni programs, a Former Eagle Scout who believes the Boy Scouts of America should change their membership policy with an eye towards equality and a devoted father to a future actress.
