Adam joined the FOX 13 team as a freelance reporter in 2019. He focuses on tough stories that hold people accountable.
Adam has won an Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative journalism and an Emmy Award for investigative journalism. He has also won two Golden Mike Awards and has been nominated for eleven Emmy Awards in total. While working in Las Vegas, he was recognized for his investigations into the Las Vegas Strip mass shooting, the NV OSHA system, and officers within the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
He says he appreciates the recognition, but for every trophy and award there is an important story with an innocent victim behind it.
One of his biggest stories led directly to the arrest and conviction of a “doctor” who was practicing without a medical license for years and dumping vials of blood in his backyard. Another story allowed him to advocate for a veteran who was not receiving the benefits he deserved from the VA. After the veteran spent years battling the system, Adam’s reporting helped him get tens of thousands of dollars owed to him by the government.
Adam was raised in Orange County, California and graduated from Chapman University with a degree in television and broadcast journalism. He worked in the hot deserts of Bakersfield, Palm Springs, and Las Vegas before moving to Utah.
When he’s not out telling stories, Adam is trying new restaurants or simply enjoying the outdoors. He is a proud Eagle Scout, as well as a long-suffering Philadelphia Eagles fan.
