His work as a professor, mentor, teacher, and tutor has taught him the joy that comes from seeing his students excel where they felt they could not.
When Adam is not teaching at the university or researching in a library, he enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. Fishing, playing music, and snorkeling at the beach are favorite pastimes.
