And later in life he was drawn down to Tucson in order to hone his skills, get a BFA from the University of Arizona, and meet his physicist wife Marie. Adam and Marie have lived in Philadelphia since 2001, where Adam draws, paints, writes, spends too much time on the internet, and listens to public radio.
