“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” – Henry David Thoreau
Cristal Clark is the quintessential small town California girl, born and raised in the heart of Steinbeck Country; a little corner of California where the agricultural fields of the valley crash into the Monterey Bay. As a teenager, Cristal attended Salinas High School where she found her niche for the dramatic arts and became greatly involved in the Thespian Society and acting in community theater. After graduating as a proud Cowboy from Salinas High, Cristal moved to Beverly Hills for 4 years where she studied creative writing and improv comedy at the Groundlings Improv in Hollywood. Upon moving back, she worked in TV News Production and Promotions at Hearst Television in Salinas. She also became immersed in community activism by drawing on her marketing, writing, and public speaking skills to assist several local non-profits and community leaders with their marketing and public relations efforts. Currently, Cristal is back in school and working towards her B.A. in Human Communication from CSUMB. For the daily grind she is a digital marketing specialist, photographer, and self proclaimed Maker.
Cristal considers herself a happy camper who is constantly seeking out weekend wanderlusting adventures – Traveling, hiking, mountain biking, anywhere that she can go to discover new and exciting places through her camera lens.
