Adam has always had longstanding passions for entrepreneurship, travel and philanthropy.
Prior to co-founding G2G Collection and The Giving Plan Foundation, Adam graduated from Cornell University and launched Jezebel Magazine when he was just 23 years old, one of the fastest growing city publications in the country, which he sold in 2003.
As one of the earliest members of Private Escapes, a destination club, Adam identified two problems inside the first-generation business models – availability and financial security. This led him to co-found Equity Estates in 2006, the most successful Luxury Residence Fund in the country, raising over $60 Million and building a world-class portfolio of vacation homes that is still around and thriving today.
In 2012, Adam combined his passion for philanthropy with his entrepreneurial drive to start his first social enterprise, Getaway2Give (G2G), which is one of the fastest growing social enterprises in the country. It has also raised over $12 Million for charities and is positioned to be a game changer for charitable fundraising in the U.S.
