Adam has been working with me for many months as an advisor to my startup. He has proved an excellent sounding board. He is able to quickly ... pick up the ins and outs of a business, distill it down to its key components, and offer productive and insightful advice as to what actions will take a business to the next level. On top of that, he's a fun guy to chat with. Anyone considering Adam as a co-founder or an advisor would be lucky to have him on board.
