He received his BFA in Dramatic Writing and Cinema Studies from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and is a graduate of the American Film Institute Conservatory in Hollywood (MFA Screenwriting), where he was given the Richard Levinson Award for artistic excellence.
Adam was one of the writers of Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, Insomniac Games' blockbuster next-gen follow up to its highly successful PlayStation franchise, and was the Co-Lead Writer on Dirt 3, Codemasters' sequel to its top-selling off-road racing game.
