PARTNER & CO-FOUNDER, PRODUCER & WRITER
Adam graduated from the Rotman Commerce program at the University of Toronto in 2010 with a Bachelor of Commerce as well as a major in Economics and focus in Marketing. He spent a number of years as an account manager in the advertising industry. His most notable work comes from his time managing high-profile clients like Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods and Mercedes-Benz. Although advertising is the most creative end of the business spectrum, Adam felt he wasn’t putting his creative talents to full use. He became a regular contributing writer and photographer for several Toronto music magazines as well as a freelance designer in order to exercise his creative passions. Ultimately it was this need, along with devotion to inspired content, that urged him to start up Born North Productions.
