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 language and mythology of popular science fiction /fantasy films, comic books, and role-play gaming encouraged an emergent more courageous voice from deep within him.

Adam's creative vocations have always been inspired by possibilities. Forever the outsider his creative impulses continually led him to the energetic bouderies 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, liaison, world builder, conceptual designer and writer.

Co-founder of Welcome to Flowerdale, Adam believes that the human imagination is the worlds 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.
