The son of a single mother who worked in restaurants, Adam and his younger brother took on a lot of responsibility at a young age. He earned an academic scholarship to Hobart and William Smith College in Geneva New York where he received a degree in Russian Area Studies.

He completed a semester of language immersion study at Middlebury College. In 2019 Adam received his Master’s in Art of Teaching from UNCW.​

Adam converted to Catholicism in 2014 and found that the doctrine of Catholic service became a critical guide in his life. In addition to his years of work as a teacher and a coach, Adam has volunteered for Meals on Wheels through St. Mark Catholic Church for over five years.

Adam recognizes the critical role that government plays in our lives. As citizens, we have a responsibility to participate and give back. He endeavors to do both.
