“To put it simply Adam is the most versatile and talented human being I ever worked with. His exceptional programming skills combined with realistic visions of the future, hands-on leadership and tireless enthusiasm is just unmatched. Everything becomes clear and simple when you run it through his brain: He has this ability to explode herculean projects in atomic tasks, making everyone involved in his teams proud of the accomplishments --- It was pure joy and excitement to go to work with him every day.” - Luc, The Future of Technology.

“When you combine an ability to simplify complex problems, raw enthusiasm, technical creativity, innate talent, and hard work you'll find a person like Adam. We haven't worked together since 2000, but we have collaborated in the intervening years. Adam's had a meteoric career because of the aforementioned qualities, but what's set him apart is his insatiable curiosity. He’s a great team leader and player. Wherever he goes, or whatever he does, you can be sure it’ll be fun, exhilarating and great results.” - Eric, Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton
