Story
Introduction
Adam is an expert in virality, engagement on social networks, and distributed outsourcing/offshoring. He got his start in the online restaurant space with a website called Nishnash, devoted to presenting the world's restaurant information and providing relevant online services. By growing a team and developing a distributed small-task engine (think mechanical turk), Adam helped grow Nishnash into a platform for UGC and services such as ordering online. Nishnash was sold to DiningIn in 2007.

More recently, Adam co-founded Social Dynamics, a social-platform app company that built applications for Facebook and Opensocial. While at Social Dynamics Adam developed Naughty Gifts and co-led development of Nicknames, which respectively reached 4 and 10 million users. Social Dynamics was sold to the Social Gaming Network in April 2008.

Today, I co-founded and run Social Expeditions, trying to disrupt entertainment on social media. I'm interested in mobile and social network platforms as well as in the diet/health space. Adam holds a B.Sc/B.A. in Neuroscience/Economics/
Psychology from Brandeis University.
