Biography

Adam focuses on Environmental Philosophy. He is particularly interested in what makes a wild animal wild.

He holds a B.A. in Studio Arts from Colgate University and a Masters of Science Communication from the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. Adam (aka At) moonlights as a filmmaker. At Films have featured in eleven festivals across eight countries. His work includes pieces on primates across Asia and Africa, wedge-tailed eagles in Australia, edible sea vegetables in the far South Pacific, kola nut trees in Cameroon, and American martens in the North Woods. Odd experiences during filming inspired his philosophical interests.

When not chasing animals, At’s favorite activities include foraging, wandering, and canoeing through ice flows at the end of winter, just when the ice is soft.
