Adam's first taste of acting came from an extra role in the motion picture COPLAND where he was featured in a short scene with Harvey Keitel. But it wasn't until a chance meeting with the executive producer of NYPD Blue, that Adam decided to move to Los Angeles and search for his big break.
Adam immediately landed a string of television roles beginning with a starring role in the Steven Bochco-produced Brooklyn South, playing Officer Hector Villanueva. He went on to co-star in All Souls for UPN, and snagged a recurring guest role on WB's Felicity. In 2002, Adam elevated to what could be called heartthrob status, when he co-starred in the final season of the cult hit Roswell. Adam has also been seen in a recurring role on Showtime's Resurrection Blvd. His film credits include A KISS OF CHAOS, LET THE GAME BEGIN, BOHICA, TAKE, LOVE AND DEBATE, CIELITO LINDO, THE IMPOSTER and KING RIKKI, and he even appeared in Jennifer Lopez's breakthrough video for If You Had My Love. The sexy actor was also seen in both PEOPLE magazine's Sexiest Man Alive issue in 2002 as well as PEOPLE EN ESPANOL's 25 Most Beautiful issue in 2003.
Adam was born and raised in New York where he dreamed of a professional baseball career and had even received scholarship offers to play in college. After injuries prevented him from realizing his baseball dreams, in high school Adam had dabbled in acting, even winning an award from his theater class. Adam currently divides his time between Los Angeles and New York, where his family still resides.
