Adam started coding when he was 16, building GPS tracking systems in Matlab. The first start-up he joined had a $3B IPO (iBeam Broadcasting) - after that he was hooked on start-ups. For the first seven years of his career, Adam held Engineering and Product roles at Oracle (Siebel), Facebook, Jarna (Mobile Apps) and AAyuja.
Before starting Kahuna, Adam was a successful Venture Capitalist for six years at Menlo Ventures and Bain Capital Ventures. He created the opportunities to invest in Carbonite (IPO) and AeroScout (acquired), both of which returned more than 10 times their original investment.
Outside of work, Adam created the Glow Foundation, a non-profit that has provided financial education and aid to thousands of college-ready students and improved financial literacy in America since 2006.
Adam received his BS in Computer Science from Stanford University, then went back to get his MBA at the Stanford GSB a number of years later.
