A very serious, fancy, refined, and pedigreed (GAG!) violinist, Adam grew up in Chicago and went to Northwestern University as an undergraduate where he studied with famed Portuguese violinist, Gerardo Ribeiro. He then continued with graduate work at Rice University where he studied with the world's most beloved concertmaster, Raphael Fliegel.
Currently Adam performs anywhere and everywhere with his groups, The Weight, Pianafiddle, and The Dueling Fiddlers. He teaches internationally via skype and he lives, farms, and teaches in what is officially "America's Coolest Small Town," Lewisburg, WV.
