"In the last few months I have discovered a new passion and new purpose to my life," Pratt told 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 said he's headed to work for American Defense Enterprises in their cyber security division.
