He started playing piano in 1973 at the age of five; he participated in several public piano recitals, guild competitions, and composing contests during the period of his formal training. Adam was a music business major at the University of Texas at San Antonio and has played in several bands since his early teenage years.

Coming from the older breed of MIDI-users, Adam is a 20-year veteran of MIDI applications, recording, and synthesizers. He runs his own MIDI studio that has been built up since 1984. It currently consists of a various array of synthesizers, drum modules, sequencers, MIDI patchbays, analog/digital effects, analog/digital recording equipment, three mixing consoles, and a Macintosh-based digital audio workstation. He is a fan of analog synthesis or any kind of synthesis that doesn't use sample-playback technology, but utilizes both the old and the new technology in his musical works.
Adam has been involved with computers for many years, and currently uses a PC clone under the Windows 2000 platform, as well as the aforementioned Mac in the studio. He has extensive experience with both PC hardware and software, and has been in cyberspace for 21 years, during which time he has been a BBS Sysop for several systems.
