In 2010, Adam wrote and directed his first short film entitled I DO, which won the Silver Screen Nevada film festival, the Newport Beach, New Orleans, and Fort Lauderdale festivals.

In 2017, Adam was invited to the Havana Film festival though Sundance, which inspired Adam to direct a documentary on the artists of Havana entitled BEING CUBAN - This is still in the works.

When Adam was 8 years old, his mom was approached by an acting agent, and followed up on a meeting with her. Adam subsequently acted in nearly 30 commercials and TV specials from the age of 9 to 18 years of age. This was clearly a strong foundation of seeing the film industry from all sides.
