Hayden attended Nelson Malborough Technical Institute and studied a Bachelor of Information Technology, which he completed at the end of 2012. Since then he has taken a number of short term casual employments, whilst working as a freelance web designer. For three months in 2013 he volunteered in the Solomon Islands as Computer Specialist. During this time he taught Computers at the Don Bosco Technical Institute, a school for Trades on the main island of Guadalcanal, and constructed a website for the Institute. (www.dbti-si.com). Hayden received a scholarship in 2009 for the 2010 Tertiary year.

Hayden writes:

"The experience was very rewarding, both in terms of what I could do for the students and also what I have gained from the experience. My faith is certainly richer, and I have met some truly amazing people. Without the skills I have acquired from my studies, I couldn't have offered so much to the people of Solomon Islands."
