The Green Lens Media Team
Filmmaker, musician, and Apple Certified Trainer in Final Cut Pro, Adam has over 15 years experience producing a range of projects, including promotional video, narrative feature films, documentary, corporate training videos, commercials, grant videos, biography / heritage films.
His first feature, The Carving, produced in his senior year of high school, ran 90 minutes and starred Boston Screen Actors Guild members. This experience led him to be assigned as Key PA on Todd Solondz’s Palindromes, and what started as a high school dream became an entrepreneurial reality when Green Lens Media, LLC was launched in 2009. Leading GLM, Adam has produced videos for small businesses, individuals, non-profits, corporations and brands, including Fortune 100 and 500 companies. Even on corporate jobs, he taps his filmmaker creative roots in order to always be pushing to tell stories in more engaging, compelling, and memorable ways.
Adam loves collaboration. He and Medford TV3 collaborated on the Filmerica 72-Hour National Film Challenge, and came away with the awards for Grand Prize, Audience Award, Best in Genre, and Best Backdrop. With a background in music, being a pianist and composing original music since 1992, Adam collaborated with his brother to co-produce the WMA REAL (Relief Effort Across the Land) Concert. The show benefited the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital in South Africa, as well as Harry Connick Jr.’s Katrina Musician’s Relief Fund. Held at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA, the concert was personally blessed in a video message from Africa by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
In addition to running GLM, Adam is an Apple Certified Trainer (ACT), training at Apple Authorized Training Centers (AATCs), as well as at Green Lens Media. He has taught hundreds of editors, new and experienced, from independent filmmakers to companies and organizations such as WGBH, NBC Universal, MTV, The Boston Globe, Emerson, Harvard Law School, Boston University, MIT Media Lab, Mass General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, John Hancock, Prudential, Liberty Mutual, US Army, US Navy, ESPN, the media team for NASCAR, and more.

Adam has a B.A. from Bard College with a double major in Creative Writing and Film, is a graduate of the New York Film Academy, and the only thing he loves more than the movies is making them. Maybe hiking. Actually, when doing both simultaneously he reaches his zen.
