They have brought their funny, engaging, and interactive workshops and speeches to dozens of conferences, businesses, and schools all across North America including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, TEDx, Coldwell Banker, the Minnesota Department of Human Services, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and the Connecticut Supreme Court. 
Hayden’s quick wit and cheerful self-deprecation has earned them plenty of comedic accolades as well, including over 635,000 followers on TikTok, a quarterfinalist spot on America's Got Talent, and a guest role on Netflix & Adult Swim’s Tuca and Bertie. Hayden has been a semifinalist for Stand Up NBC, a finalist for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’s Comedy Writing Mentorship, a featured performer at Limestone Comedy Festival, and has opened and featured for Maria Bamford.
