Board Member

__________________________

Hayden is a relatively new member in the Anchorless family. When he got his first taste doing tech last year for Beauty and the Beast, he couldn’t get enough. He was moved by the impact he could have within a community that is commonly left behind. He is currently a sophomore at Mira Costa High School, and is honored to be starting his first directing role at Anchorless this fall.
