About

Adam first came to Alaska on a long weekend in 2009 for the World Beard and Moustache contest. Although disappointed that he was only awarded the 4th best Salvador Dali moustache in the world, he knew that he had to figure out a way to get back to Alaska. 

In 2013 Adam packed up all his belongings and headed north to the last frontier.  He has never been happier.  When he isn’t in court or doing legal research he is out running, skiing or otherwise getting lost in the hills around Anchorage; occasionally slowing down enough to take a photograph. He thinks the best part about living in town is that Alaska is only 15 minutes away.

Adam has had a wide range of experience.  He was born on Tyndall Air Force base and grew up in Panama City, Florida.  He moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Carnegie Mellon University with a concentration in Site Installation and Electronic Media. He studied bronze casting at Nagoya Zokei Geijitsu Daigaku in Komaki-shi, Japan. After completing his foundry apprenticeship back in Florida he moved to California where he spent nearly a decade at Apple, Inc. working on everything from the original iMac to the touch sensor of the iPhone.  Some say that every iPhone is calibrated to his finger!  He went to law school at Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco specializing in criminal law, litigation and public interest law.  While there he was an editor of the Environmental Law Journal and competed in 3 national mock trial competitions.  He was fortunate enough to receive internships at both the Electronic Frontier Foundation and at the San Francisco Public Defender.  He has studied code law at Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense in France and in New Orleans.

Adam is a member of the Alaska Bar Association with membership in the Family Law, and Unbundled Services sections.  He served on the executive committee of the New Lawyers Section from 2014-2016.  He is also a member  of Phi Alpha Delta.
