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 earned a degree from Specialized Bicycle Components University in 2006, expanding on his first job as a bike mechanic at the age of 15. He grew to be one of the area’s best in that industry, and has only recently left after 18 years in the field to join the Van Dam crew.
With his family still in the Cross Village area, Adam is fortunate to be near family. He proposed to his wife Maria just after he started his career here at Van Dam. They married in the fall of 2019.
Adam enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, snowboarding and too many more outdoor activities to mention. If you do find him inside, he also enjoys reading history.
- Started at Van Dam: June of 2018
- Born in: Petoskey, Michigan
- Favorite Project to work on: When not out riding his mountain bike, he enjoys upgrading it and as he is a very hands-on, self sufficient guy, he is currently learning about auto mechanics so he can repair his own vehicles. He also loves all things woodworking.
