Ready for bigger things, he left for Miami for a year to pursue a career in modeling in South Beach. There, he landed his first big stage performance, starring in the play Love Allways opposite Latina superstar Tessie Santiago. After getting the theatre bug, his agent recommended him to move back to NYC to conquer the theatre world there. Upon returning he landed a breakthrough role in the controversial and critically acclaimed play Befriending Beau, about three neglected teens in an LA suburb. Adam soon then reached cult star status, and reprised the role of Tash for two more off-Broadway runs, eventually leading him to meet NY music critic Chip Deffaa, who cast him in his first off-Broadway musical revue, Mad About the Boy.
Mad About the Boy was acclaimed by such Broadway greats as Tony winner Tommy Tune and Adam starred aside powerhouses such as Baby Jane Dexter and Karen Oberlin. He recently recorded the cast album which is expected to be nominated for a slew of theatre awards. Keeping busy, Adam also managed to appear as a regular on the sketch comedy show Shameless and did spots on Strangers With Candy and Upright Citizen's Brigade on Comedy Central.
Releasing his first single, he is very passionate about his music. "Music, to me, is art. Any style, any place, pure and simple. Performing, singing and creating music are the things I love the most.". Bringing an R&B edge to a pop landscape, Adam describes his music as "a hybrid of styles with one powerful voice behind it". His musical influences run the gamut from Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera to Cyndi Lauper, Missy Elliot and Leeann Rimmes.
His first single I Told Her is a power ballad that he hopes will help those lonely souls getting over a bad breakup. "The song is about realizing that someone you want to be with more than nothing else in the world doesn't return your feelings, and that is one of the most painful things you can experience. For me, music can ease the pain and is a portal of release for it. I hope my music can do the same for others".
