Adam studied literature and theatre at Harvard and directing at USC Film School. After working as an Editor for independent films, he got his start as a director on FOX's "On The Lot," a directing competition produced by Steven Spielberg, in which he wrote and directed a new short film every 5 days. That's where Adam met collaborator Zach Lipovsky. Recently, Adam and Zach co-directed Freaks and Kim Possible, and they are working together on many other future movies and TV ideas.
Adam has also directed projects for Disney, ABC, Google, Skybound, and commercials for companies like Lexus, Ford, Red Bull, Proctor & Gamble, HP, Sports Illustrated, and Universal Studios.
