Our team has become part of many other teams - near and far. We look forward to joining yours.
Adam graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Commerce degree, majoring in Strategic Management & Organization. Bringing his education and passions together, Adam discovered his niche in the visual arts and founded Phlatout Media and Are You Social in 2015. Never one to sit still, he continues to develop and expand his skills in visual media by combining his passions for vehicles, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and everything in between. Are You Social is Adam’s effort to capture the moments we try to remember, and present the excitement in this world.
