While serving in the army Adam took an interest inventory exam where the results indicated overwhelmingly that he should become a teacher. He promptly ignored the results and pursued engineering until a local Boston charter school needed a math teacher. He decided to give teaching a try and learned the value of a good assessment when he realized the interest inventory was correct – he loved teaching. But the computers and activities students were allowed to do with them in schools were limited. He sought to fix this by going back to school to learn more about how technology could impact teaching and learning and eventually led technology in three school districts. After launching 1:1 computing for 60,000+ students, he moved to companies where the opportunity to impact learning at scale included much of the world, first with Facebook and now with Roblox. Adam earned his undergraduate degree from West Point, and his doctorate in education from Harvard.
