Adam worked with academics in psychology, sociology, philosophy, business, theology, and history to produce analyses of important works in Western intellectual history. His role was to rewrite complex, wordy academic prose so that first-year college students found it accessible.

In this position, Adam created content for the University of New Hampshire Health Services website. This role requires the ability to research and to write in ways that engage college students.

Adam has written and curated content for a pre-college summer program blog whose purpose was to show parents what their kids were doing in seminars and on outings.

In all, he authored more than 100 blog posts.

He is a talented and persistent researcher, and he enjoyed taking complicated topics and creating accessible, engaging articles for a general audience. He has written about both mental and physical health, books, education, and technology.
