Adam is a social innovator and self-coined “cultural architect.” His life and work is dedicated to living well in his place and with others.

These spaces have included restorative justice programs for homeless youth, sustainability programs for social service agencies, farm to school programs (including school gardens) for ten K-12 schools, and TEDxDirigo.

Why did you choose Portland? Wild nature, progressive values, and a strong local food system are key things I desire in my home town. Portland has an abundance of all three.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? My new favorite indulgence are the tofu buns at Pai Men Miyake.
