Years of Industry Service: 1.5
Although this is Hayden's first go-round in the service industry, he's already figured out that every job is essentially yours, especially in a small restaurant. "This is a big family here," he says. "You do what you need to do to get stuff done: hosting, dishes, grimy stuff." At twenty, he's in the tenuous stage in life when you realize you're not a kid anymore, but neither are you old enough to say things like, "when I was a kid" without a bit of self-conscious reflection. He's still in college studying architecture. "I want to give myself that foundation. If I don't like it, I'll go into industrial design. I like making spaces and nooks." Hayden father is a private contractor and "has always been one to tackle 20 different things." As for his mom, Hayden says, "She is where I get all my artistic abilities." He has two older sisters and a younger brother. In his downtown, Hayden focuses on hobbies like pottery, spending time with his nieces and nephews, hanging out with his buddies and studying KC's downtown architecture.
