Prior to his IT career, Adam attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., and worked in management at some of the top restaurants in Manhattan, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. It was while he was in Manhattan, that he began using a new invention called the personal computer for professional use. He took Windows on the World restaurant from keeping extensive wine inventories on paper to automation. As Adam’s interest and expertise in technology grew, he left the restaurant industry behind, but not his love for food. In his off time, Adam enjoys time with his wife, Donna and their daughter, Rylan and their dogs, as well as travel and dining. Adam served on the Board of Directors of the Ballet Theatre of Maryland, during which time he moved the professional company to a new studio, coordinating the provision of cost-effective space, with donated materials and labor.
