He is extremely creative with user interface design, understands complex multi layer system interactions & builds efficient processes. Adam's outgoing soft skills are on display when he is gathering requirements, understanding user needs and working across teams. A+
I had the pleasure of working with Adam on a complex Internet content management system development project. The project involved integrating multiple Commercial Off The Shelf products through configuration and a large amount of custom coding. As the team lead, I was responsible for assigning and coordinating development activities. Adam participated openly in team discussions and worked well with the team. Adam was responsible for development of custom code that provided critical functionality. I could always count on Adam to deliver good, reliable code. When he encountered limitations within the various products, he would provide alternative solutions. Even though the project was challenging and involved many long hourse, Adam always maintained a positive attitude. Adam was a great asset to the team and someone that I will always be happy to work with.
Adam is an excellent software engineer with a great sense of design and usability. He is a forward thinking person that delivers today's needs while addressing the changes of tomorrow. His listening and communication skills create a positive collaborative environment where customers feel their worth and are able to get what they conceive of in conversation and more. Above all, applying these very skills in a team environment allows Adam to ignite intellectual conversations where great ideas percolate. What impresses me most about Adam is his creativity, which is greatly manifested in his personal as well as his professional life. I highly recommend Adam as a Software Engineer for he is a great pleasure to work with.
As Adam's manager for several years at APM/MPR, I was very pleased to work with such a bright, well-rounded individual. He has the unique combination of being a very solid computer programmer / analyst as well as an excellent communicator (both oral and written). As such, Adam was excellent when working with customers in ascertaining what they needed and translating this into technical terms; they respected his gentle, approachable style. He is a conscientious person who has a good work ethic and a thirst for learning. Adam is both self-motivated working on solo projects but also is very effective and enjoys within a diverse team. I was also struck by Adam's creativity which finds outlets inside and outside the office. I highly recommend Adam as a software engineer / systems analyst (amongst other things, e.g. bassist, trekking guide, artist, etc.).
Adam worked for me at Cornell University, developing web and database applications. Adam is a great team member, fast learner and conscientious developer who takes a user-centric approach to design. I highly recommend him.
