My full name is Clayton Anthony Martinez. I was born on January 7, 2001. Born in Concord, I live in Bear Poplar, Rowan County, NC.
I was raised in Bear Poplar (or Mount Ulla), Rowan County, NC. I attended Mt. Ulla Elementary School, West Rowan Middle School, & West Rowan High School. I ended up dropping out of school, though. I don't remember much of my childhood. I'm a good, gay, Christian man that loves his Lord & Savior, family, friends, pets, & church very much. I'm an animal lover. And a reader. (I seriously love to read!) I am a saxophonist, percussionist, & recorder player. You can also find me on Find a Grave!
