Hey, I’m Adam.
I’ve worked on a lot of projects. I started in a competitive environment of start-ups, and I’ve worn almost every hat imaginable. Through these experiences I have become a product strategist, who thinks like an engineer, with a background in user-centered design. I’ve worked for big companies as well as small, and across a huge variety of industries. I’m adaptable and enthusiastic about my work.
There’s nothing I enjoy more than figuring out the solution to a problem through the creation of an interesting product. For me, designing and building successful products is a fun challenge.

In the beginning…
Over my decade long career, I’ve worked with a wide variety of customers in what feels like every industry imaginable. Here you will find some of my older works, which I believe are foundational in my development as a designer.
UI/UX Designer, SuperBetter
Meant to be my foray into the world of altruistic software, SuperBetter was a small start up, put together by the famous TED talker, Jane McGonigal. On this team, I was one of two in-house members of the product team, tasked with designing the experience, as well as the interface itself, of a game designed by the founder.
Tinder for board games is the easiest way to describe this project. Creating an online community, as well as leaderboards for board games, as well as miniature strategy games. We reached over 10,000 users in our first few months, and established relationships with many major publishers in the space.
Web & UI Designer, Bigpoint, GMBH
Proving I could do more than marketing, Bigpoint afforded me the opportunity to work directly with game development teams, creating interfaces for their triple-A quality browser based games. I also worked with marketing, creating multivariate testing sites for a variety of the games they published.
Web Designer, Tobi
My first real job, hired to be the designer for their online fashion sales platform. This was before most companies really explored having dedicated UI/UX designers, but I quickly found myself in that role. When I first started, there were many user issues, the largest of which was that customers could not find mens clothes! After leading a redesign of their website, I worked to make the products that our customers wanted, easily reachable.
