Hammet graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in political science, certificate in intensive research methods and certificate in urban planning and regional development. He studied non-linear data analysis at the University of California, Berkeley, and worked under grants from the National Science Foundation studying political knowledge and the media.

Hammet is the former director of operations for the international progressive nonprofit Planting Peace where he worked to maintain and expand programs around the world from orphanages and medical relief to human rights and bully prevention. He co-created the rainbow-colored Equality House across from the Westboro Baptist Church and lived in it for five years. Hammet's work and commentary has been covered in The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and most other major outlets.
