Age:33

Title: Artist

Married/Single: Married

Kids:5

City you live in: Coolidge, AZ

A typical day in my life includes…

work and getting kids to and from practice or games. It’s tough balancing all out schedules with 5 kids. They ask me so many questions sometimes that I feel like I’m holding a press conference, “yes , next question , you in the front” lol.

I was born…

in California but I’ve been in az since I was 11

My favorite thing about Arizona…

going back to my hometown and hitting up the river in Parker, AZ

I’m listening to…

Ellie Goulding, J.Cole, Heather Longstaffe , The Notorious B.I.G, Bebe Rexha and Paramore

My family…

is loud, crazy busy, plays pranks on each other, and has EPIC nerf gun fights lol

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

I’d probably have to say Britney Spears or Ellie Goulding (I have this fascination with all things British)

One thing I cannot live without…

I love art but I don’t think I could live without basketball.  I love watching it, playing it. I’m a basketball junkie. God gave me the heart of a basketball player and the body of a smurf.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a trash man (true story)

I’m inspired by…

my friend Mike who believed in me as an artist since day one. I’m also inspired by Kobe Bryant, I try to bring the same passion, drive and dedication to my art as he brought to the basketball court.

The one person who motivates me is…

I’m motivated by many people. I appreciate all the love from my supporters, but my family is always motivating me in the way that I’m constantly trying to drop their jaws with a new art. The fact that they aren’t easily impressed makes me work even harder to raise my art to the next level

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

for people to be more understanding towards one another. We all have a different struggle. I’m trying to inspire people with my art and story, and give them hope. I think at the end of the day people need hope

The perfect day would be…

hanging out with my wife at Disneyland… without the kids lol

My first job was…

a small engine mechanic (I fixed weedeaters and lawn mowers)

My favorite escape…

doing art or playing basketball when I can

My life…

is pretty crazy, it’s either non stop go go go or it’s just chill. It has been a journey with huge peaks and valleys but I truly feel blessed to be where I’m at today

I’m currently working on…some new sand art. I’ve done some awesome sand art portraits on my table and now I am putting them on canvases so they can be hung up. After that maybe some gun powder art, and after that who knows. We’re only limited by our imaginations and my mind is constantly thinking of something new

Always…

laugh and have fun

Never…

give up

Favorite Quote…

“The sky is the the limit…” -The Notorious B.I.G.

Biggest Dream…

I want to make it as an artist to inspire people  and show them you can accomplish anything and overcome all obstacles. I’d also love for someone to see me on the street and for them to be able to tell me that I was the reason they never gave up on their dreams

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people say they are gong to do something and don’t follow through

More about Adam…

I’m a local artist, without any formal art training. I started doing some pancake art a couple years ago. My friend Mike had convinced me I was an artist and pushed me to pursue arts. Then shortly before I had success with my pancake art, my friend Mike passed away from cancer. He left me forever inspired and as much as he inspired me is how much I want to inspire someone else. I’m all about making the ordinary things in life EXTRAORDINARY! I’ve endured a lot of hardships these last couple years. I was doing a nationally televised show in New York while I didn’t know where I was going to be living when I got back to Arizona.  My landlord  was kicking us out, he gave us less than 30 days to get out of his house that we had lived in for 6 years and were current on rent. Since we only had a verbal lease there was nothing we could do. This is only one of the many hardships I’ve gone through. It has been a struggle to make ends meet. . I’m trying to make it as an artist to show people that you can rise above anything and to inspire people to pursue their dreams. I’m trying to be proof that if I can make it, anyone can.
