Adam has directed hundreds of TV commercials and branded projects for national and international brands around the world. He’s developed a wheelhouse in comedy dialogue, improv, and visual storytelling. He has a solid instinct for casting and performance—with actors, non-actors, kids, sports celebs and animals. Adam has learned that filmmaking is a team sport. The collaboration part is his favorite.
His first doc feature, Fish & Men, about the US fishing industry and our human relationship with the ocean premiered in 2020 winning numerous Jury and Audience awards and continues to gain momentum. It is currently in worldwide distribution and screening at conservation and academic institutions across the country.
Along the way his spots and shorts have won Lions, Clios, CA Annuals, FWA, Tellys and Addys. Adam was nominated for New Hampshire Filmmaker of the Year in 2008, and he is a founding board member of the Monadnock International Film Festival.
Adam has an extensive network of people and resources for all scales of production on both coasts. He lives in Portland, OR with his family and two goofy labradoodles.
