Hope your week is going well. One of the things that I really want to use this blog for is to share the amazingness of people around me. I have friends that are talented and innovative, and from time to time I will be doing either written of video interviews. Hope you enjoy this one!

My parents are Elder Claude Guyton Sr. and Missionary Ruth Guyton. I have an older brother Derek Guyton and an older sister Tamara Guyton-Louis.
Right now my life is awesome and God has truly blessed me. I married the woman of my dreams on January 14 2011 Cecilia. I’m working as a security guard and also running my own graphic design business. I’m also, a minister and since I’ve moved to Tampa, FL I’m looking for a new church home. Also, I’m apart of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program here in Tampa, FL. It’s my way of giving back and I love it.
:Why the name Clayviv Designs?Me
Claude: The name Clayviv Designs, well, Clay is my nickname and then Viv is in honor of my late grandmother Vivian Lane. I wanted to always think of her when I’m doing my designs, because she always believed that I could be anything I wanted to be.

Claude:, we are in the development process of starting a mentoring program for young boys and young girls from the age of 10-17 called “Evolver Kings” and “Evolver Queens”. It will be like a “Big Brothers and Big Sisters” but based on Christian values and the bible.
Me: Outside of designing, what are your hobbies and interests?
Well, I love movies. I love to play basketball and watch football. I’m also a HUGE martial arts fan and I love watching MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). I even studied martial arts when I was in 5th grade. I plan on getting back in to studying the forms of maybe Judo or Jujitsu.
