For over ten years Adam combined his passions for healing and the arts, serving as Founder and Artistic Director of blank slate theatre, a personal growth-oriented theatre for youth in Saint Paul, Minnesota. While there, he collaborated with culturally and ability diverse youth to produce over two dozen theatre pieces focusing on themes of mental health and social change, including the award-winning Disordered [thy name is teenager], and Bottom, a play on child sex trafficking.
Adam continues his special interest in collaborating with culturally and ability diverse persons, frequently treating mental and chemical health concerns within transracially adoptive families, persons with developmental disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ community.
