I worked with Adam for about 8 years (and have known him a bit longer) and, in that time, I've formed some opinions about Adam.
Professionally, Adam's work ethic, drive to create a great product and constant urge to learn make Adam a reputable colleague. He's a great team leader, with the ability to plan, code and ship product in an extremely desirable time.
Personally, Adam is a kind, caring soul who looks out for his friends and co-workers and that definitely shows in the work place.
It was a pleasure working with Adam for 8 years and would suggest that if given the opportunity, you make Adam a part of your team.
Adam was a great presence to our company, his endless positivity would be a gift to any organization’s culture. Adam brought valuable insights, logistical execution and a constant stream of great ideas to better our process and product.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Adam for the past 8 years. When it comes to dev, Adam strives to stay up to date with mobile technologies, deliver code in a timely manner, and constantly tries to improve. As a team member, he always maintained a remarkably positive and organized demeanor, helped improve our process, and always provided support when needed.
Anyone would be lucky to have Adam on their team, both for development and atmosphere.
I have known Adam for 8 years and worked with him for the last 2. I can express confidently that he is a man of great talent and even greater integrity.
At Drund, he and I worked directly together on a lot of design-to-dev projects (Where I was UX/UI team lead and he was Mobile Dev team lead). He was also the anchor in any meeting ~ making sure we never veered far from the objective or spent too much time bike-shedding. His attentive nature, empathic communication, enthusiasm and skilled development always made my job better and easier.
That may sound hyperbolic, but it is not. He is a rare breed, and we were very, very lucky to have him.
Leadership Skills: 10/10
Beard Growing Ability: 3/10
I have worked with Adam for over two years now. Over that time, I feel very fortunate for not only getting to know him professionally and learning from him, but for also getting the chance to know Adam personally as well.
In those two years, I have not only seen Adam excel at the fundamentals of his job, like adding new product features and managing his mobile engineering team, but also help on other tasks beyond his role.
As I have worked with Adam on many projects, he carries all the characteristics of being a great leader. Adam not only makes sure the project gets done, but does it extremely well with his great communication methods. (As a professional in the communication field, that is something I admire.)
There has never been a day where Adam wasn’t positive. Getting the opportunity to know Adam personally showed me how caring he is and how he is truly invested about your well being and interests you have.
It was an enjoyment working with Adam and I would highly suggest that given the opportunity, you make Adam apart of your team.
I first worked with Adam while I was the Multimedia Tech with Austintown Schools. He would come in once a week to work with me, and explain the functions of Drund and their goals for the school. He was excellent with communication and making sure I understood how to use the software to be able to help train the teachers, students, and staff. . . . [H]e has given Tech Talks about building applications and the importance of communication and networking. We were Mentors together for Youngstown State University's HackYSU Hackathon. Adam is an amazing person, easy to work with, excellent with communication, and extremely knowledgeable. With his positive attitude and fantastic work ethic, he can do anything.
Adam has the natural ability to motivate others through his positive energy and drive for greatness. He is a problem-solver that continuously strives to be better and is a valuable asset to any organization.
