He is also a prominent games developer, and established Starfruit Games in 2010.[1]

Hayden has written several 'how-to' books on the topic of drawing manga, including 'Digital Manga Techniques'[citation needed]and 'Manga Clip Art'.[citation needed]

He currently lives in Cambridge, UK, and regularly attends UK anime conventions, representing Sweatdrop Studios.
