Graduating from Norwich University in 2013 with his Masters in Architecture, Adam has the title of The Facilitator here at Rockwerx, as he has held almost every position. Starting off in the shop in 2013, he was responsible for helping the crews prefabricate climbing wall surfaces. After working in the shop for 8 months he earned a spot on our road crew for a short time. In early 2015 he was asked to take on a Sales position at Rockwerx, where he excelled but did not find much happiness in the position. After being in sales for over a year and a half, Adam left Rockwerx and set sail for a 6-month road trip where he had the opportunity to travel the U.S., climb and see some of the most spectacular places. However, after returning from his trip he found his way back to Rockwerx and is now a part of the Design Team where he is responsible for taking the designed wall surface and making a buildable surface.
