    Originally a journalist, Adam was first published at age 16, contributing articles to his local newspaper. A handful of years later, he became an established film critic, writing for the likes of Ain’t It Cool News. Adam has also written extensively for Rolling Stone and GQ. As he continued to write about cinema, Adam changed direction and decided to apply his knowledge to filmmaking, producing a number of independent features in the preceding years before his award-winning directorial debut, Done In, wowed international critics ahead of its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014. Following such acclaim, which led to the film being featured on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, it was released in June 2015 to further praise on Crypt TV, the genre movie network founded by renowned filmmaker and actor Eli Roth.
    Following the success of Done In, Adam returned to the director’s chair in April 2015 on the action-packed crime thriller Kill Kane, starring Vinnie Jones, which was distributed all over the world.
    He is currently the Vice President of Hereford Films, a leading independent film production company based in London, and his credits include We Still Kill the Old Way, Bonded by Blood 2, Age of Kill and Eat Local.
