Adam is a filmmaker and writer who grew up in Arkansas, spent the past five years in Qatar, and recently relocated to Chicago. He has produced and directed projects in 17 countries and counting, working across cultures and continents to tell character-driven stories that are rich with intimacy, dignity, and humor.
Adam’s debut feature film is The Workers Cup, a documentary about a soccer tournament for migrant workers building the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The film premiered on Opening Night of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and continues to play at film festivals around the world.
In 2013, Adam spent two months at Mt. Everest base camp directing a doc series following the first woman from Saudi Arabia, the first man from Palestine, and the first Qatari to stand on top of the world. Adam has produced TV and journalism for The Guardian, BBC, CNN, and others, as well as corporate and commercial work for a host of clients.
Following the release of The Workers Cup, Adam plans to continue creating documentary and narrative work in Chicago and further afield, and is always interested in collaborating.
