I believe in

the power of

initiative,

taking action with

integrity and imagination,

and investing in

yourself and others.

My Core Values

Act with…

Integrity

Listen and observe to learn. Know and do what's right, even when no one is looking. Treat everyone with respect, including the specific ways they want to be treated. Role model diversity and inclusion. Be honest and accountable. Exceed expectations.

Imagination

Inspire greatness. Be creative with both sides of your brain. Leverage research and data to envision a desirable, delightful future. Go broad in thinking and exploration to uncover unexpected connections. Make it magical with ingenious, flawless execution. 

Investment

Be aware of strengths and opportunities to accelerate growth. Develop self and others to plan, prepare and empower everyone for success. Build enduring relationships near and far to foster teamwork and maximize impact. Make your own luck.

and be…

Positive

Appreciate what’s given and enjoy what's earned. Decide to be productive. Be dissatisfied in a constructive manner. Fall in love with the problem, then focus on forming ideas and solutions.

Purposeful

The “why” matters most. Solve for the short term and long term. Understand and connect with your audience. People won’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. 

Principled

Have strong opinions, but hold them loosely. Discuss and debate the strategy, then commit and move with speed. Actively consider and choose what you will do and won’t do.

I aspire to combine my skills and passions to make people’s lives better.

Skills & expertise

I admire people who make the difficult look easy. Naturally talented, yes, but they also typically work harder and smarter than most realize. My heroes have taught me there are no shortcuts…the real secret to success is grit.

I've spent two decades exploring new ways to combine art and science, the abstract and the concrete, and the likely and unlikely to educate, persuade, empower, support, surprise and delight.

Over time, I’ve come to count on him as a thought partner who pushes my thinking on how design can best serve the business. He welcomes other perspectives that help make the work better, and inspires those around him in the way he tirelessly perfects his craft. He role models all the right qualities any company would value in a leader/teacher, and he is wonderful to work with.”

Brian

Director, Marketing

Brian also said, “I had the pleasure to work closely with Adam, and he is gifted in so many ways. A few examples are his ability to think and speak critically to push the team, his thought process and constructive feedback to push creative boundaries, and strong collaboration skills. He has a passion to connect creative strategy to business outcomes, driving himself and the team to deliver both! Any company will be lucky to have Adam in the future, getting a chance to experience his strengths and abilities. I hope that Adam and I will get a chance to work together again, and it was a pleasure to work so closely with him for 4+ years.”
