Adam working on a boat.

Adam

Apprentice Paint & Varnish

Adam, another northern Michigan native joining our crew, was raised in Cross Village, Michigan just north of Harbor Springs where he graduated from high school. While in school, he took classes in 3D Cad, drafting and woodworking. It seems his passion for handcrafted woodwork and the water were meant to cross paths as he has been spending time on the open waters of Lake Michigan since he was just weeks old.

Adam’s family remains in Cross Village. He feels fortunate to still live near his loved ones. Adam proposed to his wife, Maria, just after he started his career at Van Dam. They married in the fall of 2019.
