Adam has crafted stories while drifting off to sleep every night since he was just a young lad. When he and his friend, Jeff, got together at the gaming table, he finally found an outlet for all the settings, plotlines, and situations he had accumulated over the years. This gave him the opportunity to create a reality others could bask in, while learning and improving through the experiences and choices they make.From Exodus and the Hero System to D&D 5th Edition, Starfinder, and LARP, the games he took part in produced many exciting twists and turns. For over a decade these types of stories and the relationships they built have shaped his life and given flight to his dreams.As a storyteller, Adam continues to explore and reach for new heights of imagination and expression. You can often find him bent over a keyboard, on an endless quest to add that one detail into his world and narratives that will ignite his players’ imaginations -- just as they so often do for him.You can also find Adam on Horizons Unknown by Hex Grid Heroes, or Heart Town Hunters by ManaPot Studios.Adam is the GM.
