Adam worked in RF Electronics for 25 years. He worked in many remote parts of the country, and the world, from mountains to underground mines. After working in, and managing, a number of technology businesses, he decided to get into a line of work that he was seriously interested in. He is now the owner of buyaboat.

Adam enjoys travelling, surfing and sailing. This has taken him all around the world. He has sailed extensively and completed many offshore miles from the East coast to Vanuatu and Lord Howe Island. He is especially keen on the challenges of single handed sailing, and owns a 36 foot yacht which his wife prays he will move onto in the future.
