Known to many as a human encyclopedia, Clayton Jones is the creator, curator, camera man, photographer, editor, designer, narrator and researcher (among other things) for the Museum of the Cosmos and as such is self taught in a variety of skills that make this whole thing work. A great deal of the inspiration for the museum itself is Clayton’s curiosity, ability to understand and comprehend information and an inherited trait of being good at building and fabrication.
