Following his military career Mr Adams studied at the University of Colorado in Computer Engineering and particularly within the Information Technology Laboratory in the areas of Invention and Innovation.

He founded Lumin LLC, a company focused on the area of solar powered wireless communication and sensor technology, and provided enterprise application design and business intelligence consultation to Avaya before joining Symplified, a technology start-up company, where he helped to develop the first version of their product.

In 2009 Mr Adams joined Ntrepid as one of 4 original R&D Engineers responsible for the design and development of the company’s innovative flagship product. He went on to become the Engineering Director and ultimately the VP of Engineering responsible for the company’s core products. He completed his 8 years at Ntrepid in 2017 after successfully launching another platform that went from concept to major sales in less than a year.
