Adam has been a BVHer since graduating from Iowa State University in 2015. Staying close to his hometown in Sioux City, he established himself at the Omaha studio where he leads a variety of project types as a Licensed Architect.
Adam believes in design that solves current problems and provides the framework to resolve future ones. His interests include mixed-use and adaptive reuse with a focus in preservation. Moreover, he designs with a community-centric mindset that considers individual buildings as a larger part of a whole. This parallels his conviction that public service is a duty, which he exercises in his involvement in civic organizations.
Adam kicks back by building furniture, socializing, and trying new restaurants with his wife, Megan.
How do you engage your community?

What is your area of interest or research?
I am endlessly curious so I pull inspiration from just about everything. I like to learn and gain perspective by discussing what interests other people and I am fascinated by science, tech, and history—the list goes on.
What problem do you want to solve with design?
Buildings can accommodate multiple uses and generations over time. True craft, whether historic or contemporary, can be a solution for performance and resilience.
