Whilst searching for a good movie critic and the lost Chachapoyan Fertility Idol (Indy reference kids), I took it upon myself to become the very thing I was seeking (the movie critic, not the idol).

At the tender age of 28, I started dabbling in YouTube videos.

It took many years, the creation of hundreds of videos, the purchasing of new equipment, and the willpower of a timid movie character that steps up in the 3rd act. Unlike Alicia Keys, this girl was NOT on fire right out of the gates.

All this blood, sweat and tears catapulted me to the mediocre levels I’m at today. Levels easily achieved in a week by a blonde with a pushup bra doing “haul” videos. Nevertheless, I persisted.

My YouTube channel ‘AdamDoesMovies’ has over 15 million views, 50k+ subscribers, and I’ve even thought about giving back to the community on several occasions (but haven’t).

A husband, father of two, Nintendo Classic owner, Ke$ha listener and self-proclaimed “big deal” I have no plans to slow down anytime soon. Especially when the car has barely left the garage.
