lost wolf | america's top fugitive | cbs hunted | hammer & wolf escape room lab | family man



Austin, Texas is my starting point. Graduation brought me to College Station and Texas A&M. Freshly married to Beth, we found our way to Louisville, Kentucky. An unexpected phone call ended us up in Jackson, Tennessee working in higher education, having three children (Abbey, Liam, & Rowan), and -- eventually -- starting a business specializing in locking people in rooms for fun. I also have been known to play a fugitive on TV.

Visual bio & resume below. More on my work at Hammer & Wolf still farther below.


Hammer & Wolf

An Escape Room Lab

Once you escape a Hammer & Wolf room, unlocking a door will never feel the same again.

The Approach

The Hammer & Wolf team is a pack of friends and fellow co-conspirators.

We builds escape rooms around a story or theme -- rooms that invite players to test their wits against challenging clues, perplexing puzzles, and maddening mysteries that are embedded in the rooms.

Each of the rooms is totally unique & originate in-house. We love the creative process of dreaming about what we could make and then figuring out how to make it a reality.

We specialize in player-focused room design, aspiring to captivate the imagination and intellect of escape rooms players looking to make memories with their friends, families, and co-workers. 


The Locations

Jackson TN | Murfreesboro TN | Waco TX


The Rooms

My primary goal at Hammer & Wolf is applying the experience my team has gained in creating and operating 20+ individual escape rooms to helping other local escape rooms open compelling & profitable experiences that their communities will love visiting again & again.



I never know what's going to happen next. I just try to keep up and do what seems the best & most inexplicable option.
