After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies from Hobart College in New York, Adam co-owned and operated a remodeling and custom cabinet making business for eight years before returning to school for a Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Maine-Augusta.
Adam worked at Kaplan Thompson Architects while he was still in school and joined the firm full time in 2015. As a Maine Licensed Architect, he loves that he’s able to help educate and inspire clients through thoughtful design and system integration, to provide safe, clean, and green living spaces. He enjoys designing on many scales, from the site plan down to the tiniest details, and he also loves the science of building and using sustainable structural models for the future of design. “I want to be at the leading edge of incorporating mass timber and cross-laminated timber in tall buildings and single family homes,” he says about his current passion for his work.
Adam is originally from Cumberland, Maine, and grew up in a house his grandfather built. He continues this legacy with his current home, which he recently completed an addition to ( he designed and built it himself!), and the work he is now undertaking to restore a vintage 32′ wooden trawler back to its original glory. All of this supports our theory there is nothing he can’t do: fly a plane, kiteboard on frozen lakes, solve all of our software woes, and just generally be one of the world’s coolest dads. A father to two, he looks forward to “anything I can do to help reduce our impact on the earth for future generations.”
