Adam grew up fishing, hunting, hiking, and camping in the deep pine woods of East Texas. At Baylor University he serendipitously stumbled into the Environmental Science building after leaving the rock gym and began what would become a decade long career in environmental work. He has worked as a biologist across the country, from bushwhacking through Appalachia restoring native Brook Trout, basking in the island life with sea turtles on the Texas Gulf Coast, to running the rivers with the salmon of Northern California. He has also spent time guiding fishing and hunting trips on the Texas coast. He maintains a passion for fishing, hiking, hunting, and biking. The thing he is perhaps most passionate about is sharing the beauty of the wild world and tuning in to its rhythms.
