Adam started studying music at a young age, taking interest in piano, saxophone, and guitar. By the time he reached middle school, he was writing songs and starting his own bands. Adam’s love for music continued to grow into a personal passion throughout high school and the years after.
During the first years of college, Adam founded the band End Point (later Devil’s Key), with whom he recorded two full-length albums, played regular shows, gained a fan following, and was featured numerous times on the FM radio station 97.6 I-Rock (both in songs and interviews). During these years, Adam completed his Associates of Arts degree at Heartland CC.
Adam continued his education at Columbia College Chicago, receiving a Bachelor of Music degree in December of 2011. While at Columbia, he studied composition under renowned composer Marcos Balter, conducting under choral director Bart Bradfield, and guitar performance under prolific Chicago blues guitarist Fernando Jones. During this time, Adam performed with academic ensembles, developed his compositional style, and began collaborative endeavors with many other artists and film students.
Since graduating from Columbia, Adam has provided compositional work for TV shows, video games, animations, commercials, films, trailers, webseries, and music licensing companies. Adam now works for AGS, an international company that develops games for the casino floor. While headquartered in Las Vegas, AGS’s creative department is based in Atlanta, where Adam works full-time as an in-house music composer/sound designer.
