Ayden had no roles in the following five years, as his parents wanted him to focus on his education. He enrolled at local high school in 2019 and was into several activities during his time there as he enjoyed playing basketball, taking dance lessons and singing.
Ayden’s matriculated just recently in 2023 and hasn’t enrolled at college, wanting to focus on acting; he’s honed his acting skills at Grays Studio and Cynthia Bain Studios, and his dance skills at Millennium Dance Studio and San Diego Dance Works.
