Skateboarder, check. Former digital development intern, check. Newest addition to the Hothouse Tech team, check. After graduating from last summer’s Hothouse internship program, Georgia State University grad Kameron Hayes stuck around to elevate his goal of becoming an expert coder and developer. With the lay of the land under his belt, he already knows where the best office snacks are hidden and the best times to hit up the Old Fourth Ward Skate Park, but what he’s most excited about is growing in his career path and taking on all the new challenges that come with being a fulltime tech guru.

“Technology has always been an interest of mine. When I was younger, I wanted to be a game designer. While I didn’t go down that path directly, my passion for working with new technologies has stuck with me. I started coding my senior year of high school, and I learned to enjoy the challenge that came with it. I’m excited to continue my journey at Hothouse, and tackle new challenges, projects and opportunities,” said Kam.
