Hayes is a member of Defiance Theater company, is performing at the LA Fringe Festival, the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, and studies at The Groundlings. While living in New York City, Hayes studied at the UCB, garnered glowing reviews for his work in the Fringe Festival there, and saw acting work produced in Web-Series, short films, off-off broadway plays, and vivid hallucination-esque day dreams. He will be the Host of an upcoming 7 part mini-series by PBS focusing on the Local Food Movement. A native Vermonter, Hayes is looking to get cast in a reboot of Cheers, mostly for the weather and the props.
