Spencer Pratt made his name as the guy audiences loved to hate on The 
Hills, but now says he's leaving the show to take his career in a 
totally new . and unexpected . direction.

"In the last few months I have discovered a new passion and new purpose 
to my life," Pratt tells PEOPLE. "With this in mind, I have decided to 
take a break from my obligations to MTV's The Hills and discontinue 
filming any more episodes for this current season."

Currently studying software engineering with a focus on encryption at 
USC, Pratt says he's headed to work for American Defense Enterprises in 
their cyber security division. 

"Upon learning of President Obama's declaration that the 'cyber threat 
is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we 
face as a nation,' I have decided to refocus my energy and devote my 
full resources to helping America face this and other unprecedented 
challenges," he says.
