Some might call him the spiritual leader of the Jamberry team, but Adam simply sees himself as a passionate entrepreneur who loves the process of product development and has an eye for spotting talent and skills in others that complement (or contrast) his own.
He founded Bluehouse Skis with his college roommate in 2005 and began manufacturing high-end powder skis to sell direct to customers. They saw great success and Adam was enthralled in product development, ignited with a passion for taking a little idea and turning it into a product that people use, experience and love.
When his wife Christy and her sisters Keri and Lyndsey started talking about making their own nail wraps, Adam’s experience with production and business know-how got his gears turning on how to bring the product to life. He had created all these stickers and other promotional products for Bluehouse Skis and was familiar with printed vinyl and had the materials and equipment to make it. He told them if they brought the design, then he would bring the business. “I built out the initial website and threw it together in a weekend. I said ‘I’m going to run with this as long as we can.’ In my past experiences I learned quickly that I’m not the best at everything and I simply can’t do everything. As soon as Jamberry became real I needed to find really good people to build a strong team. I love how we have so many great people from a variety of different backgrounds and skillsets. We are a lot bigger than the sum of our parts!”
Because his passion is in production of well-received product, it’s interesting to be part of a company where he’s not the actual consumer. “My favorite part is seeing everyday the success that the customers have with the product and how we can create new things that excite them.”
FAVORITE WRAP: The Cupcakes. “It’s the nerd in me because the process of bringing this design to life was complicated with the different colors, the metallics and layering accents.”
