Adam was born and raised in the great state of Washington. A lifetime of love for the natural world led him to study Conservation Biology at the University of Washington in Seattle, earning a BS in 2015. Coupling his interests with a passion for adventure, he has worked in habitat restoration in the Ecuadorian Amazon, earned a permaculture certification in Costa Rica, worked on organic farms in locations ranging from Belize to New Zealand, and was most recently part of an eco-friendly landscaping crew in Portland, OR. Hands-on experience in a wide variety of ecosystems has given him a strong background in sustainable land management and landscape maintenance, which he now brings with him to his restoration work in the canyon. He relocated to Orange County in late 2017 and his three favorite things are: 1. Salamanders 2. Ginkgo Trees and 3. Quinoa.
