He experienced success in several different fields including legal, real estate, and retail management, before leaving his current path to pursue a career in the film industry.
After working as a script supervisor and props manager for a few independent films he decided it was time to return to school to pursue his true passion. Concurrently, he launched a small media production company with business partner, creative collaborator, and long-time friend, Caitlin Williams.
Always looking to hone his skillset, Adam is currently working toward his B.S in Entertainment Business at the Los Angeles Film School.
