Clinton was born in Queens, New York, and moved to Philadelphia at a very young age. He graduated from Central High School and pursued a Hospitality degree at Community College of Philadelphia in their Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management (CAHM) program. At Community College of Philadelphia, the CAHM program requires students to take courses for both back-of-the-house and front-of-the-house regardless if they’re in the culinary or hospitality program. This gives students the skills and perspectives needed when working in a successful hotel/restaurant environment. Clinton is finishing his education at Temple University which has one of the best Hospitality programs in the region. Temple is a model of innovative teaching through classroom instruction as well as real-life experiences that are a crucial part of the growing process.
