Born and raised in New York City and now happily residing in north east LA, Adam holds a law degree from Fordham University and a Master’s degree in contemporary art from the University of Glasgow.
Adam became a Realtor after working for more than a decade in the art world, first as a corporate lawyer, then as the director of Foundwork, an organization that supports access and professional advancement for contemporary artists globally.
With his art background, Adam brings a keen aesthetic eye and a passion for the historic and contemporary architecture that makes LA so special. As a lawyer, Adam brings years of experience with the sort of detailed contractual work and negotiations that are essential to successful real estate deals. And as a business owner, Adam brings strategic thinking and a growth-oriented approach to help clients formulate a plan and reach their real estate goals. This combined experience allows Adam to be both an effective advocate and a supportive partner to clients as he guides them through the transaction process, whether they are buying, leasing, or selling property.
Adam and his family recently moved to Altadena where they live in a 1940’s Colonial Revival (before that, they were in a 1930’s Spanish bungalow in Atwater Village). When he isn’t helping clients with their real estate projects or planning programs for Foundwork, you can find him gallery-hopping across the city, playing soccer in Glendale, or hanging out with his wife, Erika (who is a fiction writer), and their three year old son, Nathan (who really loves peaches).
