Hey hey! I'm Adam!

I'm 37 and live in Salt Lake City, UT. I have way too many goals, overshare my net worth and love to program.

I've spent the last decade teaching programmers how to program.

Now I help millennials invest to reach financial independence sooner than they ever thought possible.

Want to see what you could do to reach FI sooner? You’re in the right place!
