5 Minutes with Zeke Hazelwood...

Zeke has been in the claims industry as a workers’ compensation lost time adjuster for more than 20 years.  He joined the workers’ compensation team at Creative Risk Solutions last year. 


Zeke has a couple individuals who inspire him in his life, his wife and his son.  He appreciates his wife’s parenting skills.  When the going gets tough, she has strength and grace under pressure.  Zeke also sees his wife’s beauty inside and out.  Zeke’s son inspires him due to his ability to stay on-point. 


As a family, they enjoy exercising, attending concerts and sporting events along with dining in restaurants.  His favorite restaurant is The Rock Wood-Fired Kitchen.  It is a classic-rock themed restaurant adorned with rock memorabilia, album covers, guitars and blasting rock-n-roll music.  Pizzas are named after classic rock songs such as, Satisfaction, Bad To The Bone and Bang A Gong.  Zeke thinks they have the best pizza and his favorite is Stairway To Heaven. 


If Zeke was stranded on a tropical deserted island he would like to have the following three items with him…

  • His wife and kids (son and step-daughter)
  • Music
  • Clean water supply


Zeke enjoys music.  He holds an Associate of Applied Arts Degree from The Art Institute of Dallas in their Music Video Business Program.  He worked for a rock band setting up audio equipment and running sound on nights and weekends.  He is always listening to the music he loves.  Hard rock, heavy metal and mainstream rock are his favorites, covering everything from classic rock acts of the past to current bands.
