Adam is a casual California surfer who travels and lives in his camper van when he’s not on charter. He likes to consider himself the “adventure chef,” always seeking new heights and challenges and befriending strangers wherever he cooks. After earning his degree in Culinary Management from the Art Institute of California - San Diego, and working in San Diego’s finest restaurants, he set out for the open ocean. Working on yachts for over 10 years now, chef Adam has vast experience as a high-end gourmet chef, both on land and at sea. Like many chefs, he considers himself strict in the kitchen, where he enforces a “my galley, my rules” policy. After a soul-searching summer traveling through the Pacific Northwest foraging with his van, Adam returns to the Mediterranean with a renewed sense of focus and a stronger culinary game. Although he is interested in a relationship with the right girl, he is determined to stay focused this charter season and not let his love life on the boat derail his plans.
