I'm Brad Adams and this is my website. I've had a few personal websites in the past (thank you Geocities) but wanted to relaunch my site with a new look and new focus. If you're interested in my professional background and what I do, check out my CV or visit my LinkedIn page.

If you read through any of my thoughts, please keep a few things in mind. First, I do tend to enjoy argument for arguments sake. There are many intellectual and academic benefits of healthy arguments so long as we stick to the topic and don't make or take anything personal. Second, one of my former co-workers probably described me best as a Geek-Nerd. This was years ago before being a geek, nerd, or hipster was cool. I've tried to be cool and it just doesn't work for me. In the immortal words of Popeye, "I yam what I yam."
