Adam, an Oxford native, now lives in Rockford with his wife, Mariah. He has a strong affinity for public service, which comes in no small part from two parents in law enforcement, a grandfather who fought fires, and a sister in public education. In his spare time, Adam enjoys cheering on the Michigan Wolverines and Detroit Red Wings – and, of course, the Grand Rapids Griffins.
