Adam hails from Ann Arbor, Michigan.  He first learned to climb at the Red River Gorge in Kentucky while earning a degree in Environmental and Public Policy at the University of Michigan.  Since then he has climbed and skied across the US and abroad, including significant time in the Tetons, North Cascades, Colorado Rockies, Patagonia, the Alaska Range, and the Wrangell-St. Elias.  Adam has been teaching climbing since 2007 and guiding since 2009 with organizations such as the Colorado Outward Bound School, World Challenge Expeditions, and the Colorado Mountain School.  In September 2016 he successfully completed his Rock Guide certification through the American Mountain Guides Association – there are less than 250 Certified Rock Guides in the whole country!
 
Adam loves sharing climbing with friends- both old and new- and is beyond excited to be doing just that in his role at Paradox.  As Program Director, Adam organizes and facilitates our climbing clinics for organizations interested in building adaptive climbing communities around the country.  His other interests include reading, cooking, music, and adventuring with friends.
