Adam began his physical training in Capoeira as a teenager in Sydney, leading to his performing at the Singapore Arts Festival in 2002 with Groupo Capoeira Brazil. In 2003 he started studying at NICA with a focus on Chinese pole as well as in flying trapeze, adagio, pitching and juggling.

After graduating in 2005, Adam performed around Australia for organizations that included Team Loko, Lexus, Sony, L’Oreal Fashion, Optus, Buena Vista and Pacific Brands Fashion. He was also the co-owner of a flying trapeze company.

In 2007, Adam accepted a contract with Cirque Du Soleil performing in Tokyo’s resident show, Zed. He was cast in a 7-man act combining the apparatus’ of pole with trampoline. During the creation period for the show he trained in the French style of pole. He now draws from both Chinese and French styles to create a balance in his acts while utilising Capoeira as his movement base.
