Adam is a product designer whose passion lies at the intersection of social innovation and product development. Drawing on his early experiences assisting disabled adults and homeless youth, Adam’s aim is in leveraging design to address the unmet needs of marginalized communities. His experience spans a number of industries and disciplines, from working as a design engineer in off-grid energy and outdoor recreation, to more traditional design roles in consumer electronics, packaging, and systems design. He often finds himself obsessing over proof-of-concept prototypes and searching for ways to improve inefficient processes.
When not at his desk, he can be found kayaking the Pacific NW or making a mess in his studio. Adam holds a BA in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin and a BFA in Product Design from the University of Oregon.
