Biography

As the Senior Technical Project Manager for the Emergent Media Center (EMC) at Champlain College, Adam recruits, hires, supervises and mentors 50+ students and interns per year with the goal of enhancing student learning and client outcomes. He is involved in scoping projects with colleagues and manages collaboration on simultaneous production teams of undergrads, faculty advisors and fellow EMC staff to concept, design, prototype and develop interactive media, games, software, mobile, VR, AR, and video solutions for local, national, and international clients. He is a certified ScrumMaster® by the Scrum Alliance and has successfully applied this agile framework to deliver a wide variety of development projects with student teams.
Adam brings a diverse breadth of production and management experience to the EMC, from laboratory and field science to film / video production, web development, and now interactive media development. Born a Vermonter, he is a graduate of St. Lawrence University with a B.S. in Biology, and applies that connection to place and scientific perspective to his creative pursuits. His love of photography, film, and their associated technology innovations prompted a career shift during the digital film revolution at the "turn of the century". In 2008, he founded Walker Run Productions, LLC with a focus on video event coverage and documentary shorts on topics such as environmental stewardship and community education. He has strong convictions about the power of experiential education and that a blend of story and interactive delivery can lead to profound social transformation. Adam seeks outdoor adventure near and far, enjoying hiking, backpacking, canoeing, and all forms of skiing with his wife and daughter here in Burlington.
