Born and raised in Digby Nova Scotia, Adam attended Acadia University where he studied Food Science and finished his BSc. After 6 years working in food industry, he attended Guelph University and got the Associate Diploma in Turf Grass Management in 2007.
Adam's philosophy to turf maintenance is, "to provide the best playing conditions while maintaining a healthy turf. I believe that a turf manager is always learning and I'll be a life-long student of science". His food science background is a significant advantage in a domain that is often considered to be as much art as science. "For inspiration and advice, I look to my peers in the industry. Associations like the AGSA and the GCSAA are great resources and I always enjoy a chat with my mentor, Rob Bell, at Copper Creek."
