A tech geek from a young age, Haydn started tearing down his 486 after school and has been hooked ever since. Software was an obvious choice when it came time to leave school, so he shot through Victoria and picked up a degree. Since then, he’s worked on NZ’s largest news site stuff.co.nz, a key infrastructure project for a government agency and any number of little side projects designed to automate his least favourite tasks.

When he’s not behind a keyboard, you might find Haydn reading science fiction, swing dancing, fiddling with his latest electronics project, or modelling something for his 3D printer. Okay, the last two might still involve being behind a keyboard.
