Adam is one of those guys who cares about the quality of his work above all else. If this means completely re-writing a story in light of a new development or update, that’s exactly what he does. Adam is intently focused on the performance of his work, and he constantly looks for ways to improve the reach of his editorial content. A high degree of autonomy, the willingness to professionally engage with our readers, and the creativity to develop his own testing methodologies all come together to make Adam an amazing asset.
