LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts, after which he graduated from the Moscow Art Theater School and became a founding member of Studio Six.

Adam has worked in English and in Russian and alongside several master teachers and independently on authors from Chekhov and Ostrovsky to J.D. Salinger and Neil LaBute. Adam has been a guest speaker at Skidmore University, Peachcraft Acting Studio, and has led Studio Six workshops at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. Adam is proud to be a founding member of Studio Six. "There's a dream we all share in Studio Six to bring the kind of theater we experienced in Moscow to the American stage. There's a pulse to theater in Moscow that I've never experienced anywhere else."

Ideal role: The flawed, unwilling, insecure protagonist?
Favorite word: "Unfortunately" in any language.
Other languages spoken: Russian, English…would love to go to back to studying French.
Worst injury you’ve ever had: Minor concussion from falling out of my bunk bed and hitting the ground head-first. This happened at a very early age. I think it explains a lot about me.
What sound or noise do you love? A well thought-out, felt, and executed guitar solo. Listen to ‘High Hopes’ or ‘Comfortably Numb’ off of ‘Pulse’ by Pink Floyd. Or Stevie Ray Vaughn’s cover of ‘Little Wing’. You’ll see what I mean. In general I love well thought out, guitar driven music. See Elliott Smith, Simon & Garfunkel, Indigo Girls, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, so on and so forth. Too many to name. I am listening to Frank Zappa’s ‘Muffin Man’ as I write this.
What do you want to hear at the pearly gates? Зачёт
