When Adam was a student at Chatsworth High School in the San Fernando Valley, he became interested in acting. His drama teacher was also Kevin Spacey and Val Kilmer, amongst other well-known actors and actresses.

Unfortunately, Adam struggled with substance abuse, which led to his arrest in 1991. At the time, he had broken the window of a pharmacy in an attempt to get his hands on some drugs. He was rescued from the situation by Dick Van Patten, who played his TV father on the show “Eight Is Enough.” In addition to that, he faced additional legal problems.

The guiding philosophy of Adam was, “Life is for living, and I live each day to the fullest possible extent.”
