Adam’s commitment to our work is personal. While attending an over-crowded Los Angeles high school he won a Posse Scholarship to attend Grinnell College and, after graduating, spent four years working with students and educators in New Orleans through Teach For America. While Adam started out as a teacher, he later managed an $8.2 million grant at the Louisiana Department of Education aimed at increasing coherence among the state’s academic standards, assessments and educator effectiveness initiatives. In addition, he led the design and implementation of the data platform thatall Louisiana educators use to set goals, conduct observations and share feedback.

In his spare time, Adam enjoys taking a long run wherever his travels take him and supporting local efforts to boost college completion rates for all students. He has served two terms on the Posse Foundation’s national alumni council and local advisory board. He loves including odd (yet relevant) YouTube clips in his emails to clients and much prefers grilling on a charcoal Webster to farm-to-table dining. He currently resides in the DC-area though most recently lived in Seattle and New Orleans.
