"I knew when I audited Adam's class, it would be beneficial for me to join. Not only were his critiques insightful, he has a way of communicating with actors that is comprehensive and relatable. He sees the scenes on a much deeper level and really helps you dive into the complexity of a character. One thing I particularly enjoy is that Adam teaches lots of different techniques and exercises without marrying anyone into following one religiously. It's about finding whatever works for you personally. Adam has taught me the importance of character intentions and obstacles, script breakdowns, and how to find the 'hottest,' most interesting choice to bring a scene or a character to life. Adam is so fucking dope. He totally understands actors, because he is an actor. An amazing actor. Seriously. Go watch 'The Gift.' Anyway, take Adam's class because you'll be like "whaaaaaat?! This guy's awesome! Fuck yeah!' #dancebreak"

“Adam is a passionate, insightful, and articulate teacher who sees each student as unique. His passion comes from practice: Adam is IN THE GAME, which makes all the difference. He is out there doing the same job as we are, facing the same obstacles and opportunities. Yet he is wise enough to know that his challenges may not be the same for all. More importantly, he is able to express and ARTICULATE what he sees in a way each individual can understand. Two actors may need to hear the same thing, but need to hear it in different ways. Adam's way is "whatever works for you in the situation". There is no "one true way” - only TRUTH. I learn as much off-stage as on during Adam's class. Anyone can see the problem, but few can break it down like Adam.”

"Adam is a highly intelligent, articulate, and passionate teacher who made me fall in love with this craft like never before, and realize my full potential as an artist. He has an impressive knack for breaking down material from a unique, deep, and truly human perspective that never ceases to inspire me. His guidance is very honest and personal, but never discouraging. ALW has catapulted me into a new level of artistry, and it has really shown in my career."
