“Sometimes tech leapfrogs us toward our social goals. I’m hoping that with our help, Social Media & NFTs will do that for gender parity.”
An eclectic background - in finance, fiction, and more - prepared Adam well for his role at Parity. More than two decades on Wall Street equipped him to assess and simplify complex issues, think up creative solutions, and communicate strategies clearly. Developing financial products primed him to develop technology products. Writing fiction in his spare time enables him to help athletes hone their stories. A consistent, steady, empowering leader, Adam’s efforts help drive the Parity NFT Marketplace. He strives to make it easy for women athletes to monetize their names, images, and likenesses within a supportive community.
Adam was scribbling away, some days on a thriller, others on an adventure game, when the invention of non-fungible tokens sparked an idea that brought him back to the business world. For a prior 23 years, he worked in finance, primarily as a Managing Director at J.P. Morgan. In one of his roles, he helped private banking clients organize and improve their financial affairs, which inspired him to help women athletes do the same.
Adam earned a B.A. from Harvard University, concentrating in Philosophy, followed by an MBA from the Darden School of Business at UVA. While his mostly junior varsity sports career makes him the least-decorated athlete on the Parity team, he offsets that with team spirit, and challenges any of his colleagues to an escape room or air hockey match. He still intends to win his summer camp’s annual alumni canoe race. In the meantime, he enjoys alpine sports with his family, which may explain why his two kids chose Colorado universities.
Originally from D.C., Adam splits his time between Westport, Connecticut and Sun Valley, Idaho.
