Prototype Escape Games

Prototype Escape Games was founded in 2019 with one objective in mind: Become the model to which other escape games will be built upon. In other words, be the Prototype. To accomplish this task, you must be something worth emulating.

Prototype aims to ‘set the bar’ for the escape game industry, and that includes changing the paradigm that escape games are currently in. If this is your first time visiting an escape game , or your hundredth time, Prototype wants to help you experience what an escape game should feel like.

At Prototype, you won’t just step into a game, be given a task, and search for a key to get out. You’ll be transformed into a different being and be present in a different universe.

Don’t break out of a room, Break into one.

Haley Welch

Haley was born and raised in Ohio, but Duval is her home. During the day, she works as a social worker but transforms into a game master at night. She loves running, baking/cooking, and Disney.

Haley played her first escape room three years ago and hasn’t stopped doing them since. She made it a personal goal to complete every escape room in northeast Florida and the surrounding areas, and she has nearly succeeded. After falling in love with escape rooms, Haley decided her next challenge was to master escape rooms at the highest level, so she became a game master.

Jenniffer Keefe

Jenniffer Keefe grew up in a small, quiet town in the Pass Area in Southern California. Being the oldest of six children, Jenniffer opted to spend many days with her grandparents, who lived just a half-mile up the street. It was with her grandmother, who loved to decorate, where she received inspiration for her future architecture and interior design goals. When she was 12 years old, Jenniffer was gifted a copy of 3D Home Architect. It was then in which she started designing her own homes and even redecorating her grandparent’s home to propose future projects.

At 18 years old, Jenniffer started attending Brooks College and received her Associates in Interior Design. After a few years, Jenniffer enrolled at Norco College to major in Architecture. She earned her Certification of Architecture and remained on the Dean’s List for her entire stay at Norco College. A few of her design teachers still use her final design projects as examples for future students.

In addition to education, Jenniffer has taken on many design projects during her late 20’s. Jenniffer took the offer to design for the Kimberly Crest Gardens in Redlands, California. She also assisted with the design of a new playground completed by a Habitat for Humanity project. Jenniffer has also taken on many volunteer roles to enhance her public speaking and leadership skills.

Today, Jenniffer plays a vital role in the design process at Prototype Escape Games. The games available in Jacksonville wouldn’t be possible without her.

Joseph W. Brazfield

Joseph W. Brazfield grew up outside of Hollywood, California, as a lifelong football fan. His mother and father treated American football like it was a religion. His father was an Oakland Raider fan, and his mother a San Fransisco 49er fan. When he turned six years old, he decided to be a Jacksonville Jaguars fan and swore that he would one day move to Jacksonville to be closer to his team.

Joseph received his GED early and attended college to receive his certifications in surgical technology. At the age of 18, he was working alongside surgeons and other medical staff. After 9 years of scrubbing cases, he pursued a career in medical device sales where he taught doctors how to use the latest technology in sports medicine. 

At 28 years old, Joseph wrote and published his first book Holographic Ambitions that aims to teach young adults how to transform their lives, and has given lectures to young entrepreneurs.

At 29 years old, Joseph began to build what is now known as Prototype Escape Games. Driven by his disdain for social media and smartphones in general, The appeal of a business that aims to bring families and friends together for 1 hour to communicate and form lasting memories was relentless. 

Everything that is Prototype Escape Games comes from the hands and mind of Joseph W. Brazfield. The logo that decorates its walls, the wood that builds the games, the electrical that brings the props and puzzles to life, even the coding of the motherboards that illuminate the rooms, are all the creations of a young man determined to make the best escape room possible.
