Public Information


Clare is slightly taller than average height, about 5'8". Her build is on the athletic side of average, but doesn't stand out as such. She has dark brown hair, usually pulled into a short ponytail, and blue eyes, a soft and fair complexion, and fairly high features, suggesting a possible French heritage. Her good looks are noticeable, and she would not look out of place at a high society event in Paris.

However, she does not dress in European depeche mode. Clare usually dresses in understated, simple clothing. Form fitting slacks (sometimes cargo pants, if the need arises), with tanks, tees, or sweaters acknowledge, but do not flaunt, her good figure. She wears mostly light to medium colors, in flattering but not garish shades. Her nails are unpainted and are always cut short.

She can usually be seen reading or writing something on a laptop, tablet, or smartphone.


Clare has a constant fluid motion about her when sitting. When she is not typing (or, rarely, writing long-hand), she may be gently tapping out a rhythm with her fingers, twirling a finger in her fine hair, or chewing idly on a pen cap. Sitting still is obviously not something she enjoys.

When standing and in a social situation, however, this fluidity transforms into an infectious vibrancy. Talking and laughing with whoever is in the room, she comes across with enthusiasm that borders on affectionate. The only time this enthusiasm wanes is when things grind to a halt and the social situation becomes stagnant. Clare will quickly attempt to usher a dull or lagging conversation on to new and energetic places.

The Internet

"Postman's error is the same as every sociologist from Marx to Freud:
He makes observations about human action and human circumstances, and assumes they are related."
- Clare Tallant McQuay, untitled paper

"Clare Tallant McQuay" is a very unique name, and so it is subject to easy Google searches. If you spend the time, you can find the name attached to some commentaries on a few obscure sociological topics. One full-length academic piece is out there for anyone willing to look hard enough: a lengthy deconstructionist critique of Neil Postman.
