Adam is a Chicago native who realised at a young age that the ocean was too far away from him. Certified in 1995 during a summer program in the British Virgin Islands, Adam made the commitment to pursue diving as a life-long career goal. It was a goal almost 20 years in the making. After many years spent as a touring DJ throughout the United States and Central America, Adam was reunited with his pursuit of diving professionally in Costa Rica, where he spent a year working and gaining experience at a small dive operation in a tiny surf town on the Caribbean coast. 5 years later he came to Koh Tao to study Underwater Photo and Video finally making the dream a reality. Aside from underwater photography Adam also works as an Event, Portrait and Travel Photographer documenting off the beaten path tours for travel agencies.
