Adam is a Project Manager at the Berkman Klein Center, where he manages the Lumen project along with various other Center initiatives. He has been involved with the Berkman Klein Center since the summer of 2008, when he worked with Lewis Hyde as a summer intern on the “Freedom to Teach” Project.  He was a special RA for the Director in the summer of 2009, and started in his current role in 2012.  He is grateful on a daily basis to have the privilege of being part of such a vibrant and inspiring community of people.

Adam has a bachelor’s degree in Folklore & Mythology from Harvard College, and a J.D. from Boston University School of Law, where he authored or co-authored papers on collaborative law, bioethics and copyright reform.

In between those two stints at school he spent ten years training for the U.S. National Rowing Team, on which he won two World Championship medals and competed at the 1996 Olympic Games. He’d be glad to talk to you about training.

Outside of the Berkman Klein Center, Adam coaches rowing and wrestling at nearby BB&N School, studies Brazilian jiu jitsu, reads as much science fiction as he can get his hands on, and adores his wife and two daughters. His role model is Batman, depending on who is writing him.
