Adam works in our finishing department, applying and sanding the meticulous layers of finish that give us the silky smooth finish we're known for. He's the strong silent type with one or two funny jokes to tell.
"It's an odd one but the Coconut Tree...I used to climb them as a kid...I was raised in Honduras."
"Animals...I think I can safely say that animals are my hobby. We've three horses, two dogs, a cat, two cockatiels and 14 chickens"
without pausing a beat.."The Flash, I could get a lot done in a short amount of time...I have an inherent lazy side to me so this would give me more free time to sit around "
"It used to be strictly punk rock but now I listen to everything."
"Lord of the Rings"
