Adam handles everything web at Checkmate. He also does all of our video editing. Busy guy. Adam's web skills span across many coding languages from HTML to CSS to PHP to JQuery. He is also proficient in Photoshop, so he can make all those websites look real snazzy. He is also very hip on the social networking scene and spends most nights on Facebook, You Tube, and Twitter–so yeah, he's super cool! When Adam's not building websites, he is editing video. All of our commercials, videos and film are spliced together by Adam. He earned a degree in Communications from Northeastern University as well as graduating from Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts Advanced Web Design program. When Adam's not being a total geek in front of his computer, you can usually find him in 5 places; on a mountain, on a boat, at a rock concert, playing guitar, or...well I guess he'd be in front of his computer if he's not in those places.
