Clay brings a decade of congressional and government affairs experience to his role as Associate. He supports day-to-day activities at the Carpi & Clay office in Washington, DC, handles issues on behalf of clients, and develops written reports for clients and stakeholders. He brings passion and a positive attitude wherever he goes, welcoming clients flying in from across the country to DC to meet with the talented Carpi & Clay team.

Clay is focused on energy policy, climate, hydrogen technology, infrastructure development, transportation, trade associations, and municipal governments. He recently completed his Master of Science in Energy Policy and Climate from Johns Hopkins University, where he studied climate change, energy policy, and the nexus of infrastructure and energy.  His capstone project, Portrait in Pink: How Advanced Reactors Will Shape Implementation of the 45V Clean Hydrogen Tax Credit, received praise for innovative policy suggestions and combining nascent technologies given new incentives from the federal government.


Previously, Clay worked in the Government Relations Department at the American Public Power Association, the national trade association for municipal electric utilities. He was a conduit for member issues before Congress, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Energy. In addition, he supported the Regulatory Affairs Department, focused on proceedings before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and litigation involving public power utilities. 


Clay began his career working on Capitol Hill, where he gained an in depth understanding of the House of Representatives and its intricacies through internships with the House Committee on Administration, assisting with the New Member Orientation process for newly elected representatives. He also worked as staff for a Member of Congress from Pennsylvania representing the Philadelphia area, where Clay was raised.


Clay has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from George Washington University. He attended the William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia (OPC '12), a Quaker school founded by William Penn in 1689.
