Adam grew up in Lake Oswego, Oregon, and graduated from Southern Oregon University with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology with an emphasis on Native American Studies and Cultural Resource Management. Adam began his career in the outdoors working in the Umpqua National Forest as a wildland firefighter on a Type II IA Crew. His firefighting career took him to Santa Fe, New Mexico; Draper, Utah; and then finally to Jackson, Wyoming, where his expertise in forestry motivated him to start a landscaping company.  Over the past twelve years, Adam has focused on growing Lawngevity, yet he still found time to kindle his firefighting passion by working as a career fire engineer and EMT for Teton County from 2010 – 2017.

Adam lives in Jackson with his wife and their two children. His hobbies include mountain biking, dirt biking, skiing, and snowboarding.
