Clay Nutting, Owner/Operator, Canon East Sacramento

Clay Nutting was born in Sacramento, but raised on a farm in Berlin, Massachusetts.

Clay got off the farm periodically throughout high school where he discovered his love for DIY music and art at the WAG in Worcester, MA. Later, while in college at Worcester State University, Clay co-founded a music and arts non-profit called Concerts 4 Charity.

Shortly after graduating, Clay moved back to Sacramento where he began to throw shows at an art loft in downtown Sacramento raising money for music and art education projects. Through these shows Clay became very involved in Sacramento’s music and arts community and has been an advocate ever since.


Ashley Rodseth, Creative Director, Honey

With a BFA in Graphic Design from Kendall College of Art & Design and a background rooted in design thinking and concept-driven design, Ashley leads the Honey design team in creating innovative and strategic work.

Drawing from her experience working in various studios in Grand Rapids, Monterey, San Francisco and now Sacramento, she brings a holistic approach to design, starting with extensive visual research, culminating in process-focused design strategy which is unique to each project she oversees.

Ashley is committed to empowering the design community in the Sacramento region. She has spoken at events to include the Emerge Summit and Design Week Sacramento on the topics of collaboration in the workplace and women in design and leadership. She seeks out local design community events, volunteering and mentoring others within her field. She continues to work closely with Design Week Sacramento with the ultimate goal of celebrating good design in the Sacramento region and inspiring the local creative community to come together.
