The Hustle

Name: Mark Moser (Outerlife Studios)

Mark Moser enables escapes from reality. As an imagineer and managing partner at the Outerlife Studios Escape Room in St. Pete, Moser manages two rooms in his facility: the Disarm and Scorched rooms. In the Disarm room, would-be escapees must disarm a bomb, and in the Scorched room, trapped individuals must escape to avoid fiery deaths. In both rooms, escapees have 60 minutes to get out. To do so, they must work together and communicate in a fun experience that brings people closer to one another.

Years in Tampa Bay


Hustle (job)

Imagineer and managing partner.

What do you do?  

Help to create one-of-a-kind adventures at Outerlife Studios - St. Pete Escape Rooms located in DTSP.

Why do you do it?

Wanted to create an immersive experience which would allow players to leave reality if only for an hour.

What was your Catalyst? (How did you get started?)

Played online escape rooms and wanted to bring them to reality.

What’s a common misconception or unknown aspect of what you do?

We design and build everything in house, so it's much more work compared to many conventional escape rooms that purchase their puzzles and electronics.

What’s the most challenging part of your Hustle?

Managing time.

What’s the most valuable piece of business advice/insight that’s helped you?

Speak with an architect before you get started. There will be 100 unknown costs related to your build-out. They will bring many of these to light.
