Environmental work runs in Adam’s family, he explains. “Having been raised by an environmental consultant and seeing the breadth of places and projects available, I always thought it was the coolest job ever.”

As a staff biologist at GeoEngineers, Adam collects and reports on field data for a variety of large and small projects. While building his professional knowledge and experience, he will be providing support and flexibility across multiple disciplines–biology, geotechnical, environmental. Adam particularly enjoys the field work and travelling to different places to try to determine human effects on a particular landscape. He also appreciates the range of specialties his co-workers represent. “With so many diverse disciplines, it is always possible to expand my knowledge and work with new people,” he reflects.

Now that he’s graduated from student to working man, Adam is looking forward to having the time and money to snowboard more often. In the summertime, he likes to fish, hike, camp or play pick-up sports, but says he is equally happy indoors, watching horror movies with his girlfriend or playing computer games online until the sun comes up.
