After graduating from university, Adam began exploring the Buddha-Dharma in the Theravada lineage in 2001, and took the Anagarika ordination in the Thai Forest tradition of Ajahn Chah in 2003. After two years in a forest monastery, he began practicing Tibetan Buddhism under his teacher Tsoknyi Rinpoche. He moved to Nepal in 2008 to study Tibetan language and Buddhist philosophy, and stayed there for seven years, gaining an MA in Buddhist Studies from Rangjung Yeshe Institute. Adam is also helping to mentor some of Khyentse Vision Project’s translator trainees.

He has been interpreting, translating, writing and developing curriculum for his root lamas and various other lamas and khenpos since 2013. He is based in Crestone, Colorado, and enjoys walking in the mountains in his spare time.
