My beer can desk at TOMS Shoes HQ
I really enjoyed my short time interning at TOMS in 2009. For many reasons. One of those reasons was that I created a fantastic workspace.
If you're interested in education reform ...

One student - another short reflection on teaching High School English in South Korea.
As teachers, we hope to positively impact all of our students. Still, it seems there are at least a few each year with whom we might have had a greater impact than the rest.

"That was a great lesson" - a short reflection on teaching High School English in South Korea.
Last night, I went out for a teacher dinner with one of my new elementary schools, here in Korea. As we crowded in the restaurant's small lobby to gather our shoes after eating, a teacher I didn't yet know said, "Hello" and then told me that her daughter is now a third year student at Munjeong Girls' High School - one of my high schools last year.
"Oh," I asked her, "was your daughter in my 2nd grade classes?"

Adam's grateful his 20s were a debt-free decade traveling with intention through work with meaning. Some of that work includes TOMS, The Obama White House, teaching abroad, art and business in the Gift Economy, two proud terms of national service with AmeriCorps, and two terms with the US Peace Corps in rural Zambia, working with small-scale fish farmers.
