'Don't be boring.'
These words have driven Hayden at various points in his career. And held him in good stead as a copywriter and creative director at some of the world's biggest (Ogilvy, DDB, Hakuhodo) and smallest (StrawberryFrog, David, Metal) agencies. Every now and then he indulges the voices in his head as a screenwriter, assistant director, cartoonist, illustrator, teacher, voice artist, songwriter, musician and music director.
These days, Hayden divides his time between driving the creative output at Famous Innovations and writing music with his band Stella by Starlight.
