When he’s not working, thinking, and talking about Move For Hunger, you can probably find Adam lying on the beach or sitting at the piano jamming with friends. His passion for helping others is contagious. Feel free to reach out - I’m sure he’d love to talk to you!

As for the serious stuff: Adam proudly represents the New York City Hub of the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers Community. In 2011 he became a Bluhm/Helfand Social Innovation Fellow and was honored at the VH1 Do Something Awardsfor his commitment to creating social change.
