Adam's work in corporate web development spans back to 2007. Early in his career an Art background and interest in design guided his transition into the tech industry as a "front end" developer - focused on delivering aesthetic, user-friendly experiences in an ever-growing device landscape. Over time Adam's range of focus broadened into the spectrum of server side technology.
Nowadays, Adam operates as a consultant, typically onsite as a "full stack" software engineer.
