Born in the suburbs of the American mid-west, Adam found a place of refuge from a challenging family dynamic within his imagination. As a troublesome adolescent the transformative language of religion and mythology, science fiction and role-play gaming, encouraged a more creative voice from deep within him.

Adam's vocations have always been inspired by possibilities. Forever the outsider, his creative impulses continually led him to the energetic boundaries that separate disciplines. With an intuitive agility, Adam has worked betwixt and between many creative roles, often simultaneously. From tattoo-artist to teacher, illustrator to art director, scenographer, creative consultant, emissary liaison, world builder, conceptual designer and writer.

Co-founder of Welcome to Flowerdale, Adam believes that the human imagination is our greatest asset. An innate instrument designed to illuminate possibilities whose complexities and contextual challenges make them otherwise impossible to see. Properly honored, nothing exists beyond its abilities.
