Testimonials

From Trusted Colleagues

Jarrod Zaremba

I have a great deal of respect for Adam's knowledge of UI design. I have worked with his designs in the past and would be more then willing to work with them in the future. Adam has also demonstrated to me that he is a willing participant and capable of working in a team environment to accomplish the tasks at hand.

Manny Ataebi

I worked with Adam on several projects and got to know him at MLB. I have come across many coders and designers through my years in this field and Adam is one of the few individuals who can efficiently plow through a high volume workload while remaining calm and steady throughout. This is a rare trait, not to go unnoticed. I strongly recommend him for any project.

Work

Some Favorite Projects.

Included here is a small sample of projects I've produced over the years as a professional web developer. While I am no longer interested in pursuing opportunities for which hands-on design or development would be a primary role, the experience gained from these projects has prepared me to manage every aspect of online business development, from concept to completion. In addition to the nostalgic value, I display these (now mostly outdated) projects because they showcase the evolution of web design over the years. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about my role with any of the featured companies here or the projects on display below.
