Adam loves to learn. When asked what is the best advice you’ve ever been given? He answered, “Never stop learning.” One thing about technology is that it is always changing and evolving. His favorite quote is, “The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything.” ― Theodore Roosevelt.
Adam is a huge fan of fishing and the great outdoors! He loves everything about fish and fishing, including fish tanks, ice fishing, and fishing at his cabin. Adam can advise you on where to find the best fish, where to fish, how deep the ice is, and how to prepare your catch. Adam even has fish tattoos! He also enjoys technology, problem-solving, and playing video games.
If Hollywood made a movie about his life, he would like to see Laura Dern be cast as him.
