Each month we bring you inside our warehouse to introduce you to a member of our Family.
Director of Family Industries Live
Don’t let the smoke clouds in the photo above scare you, Adam is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. Beneath that leather jacket is one of the most dedicated, hard working, and kindest individuals on planet earth. Adam’s work ethic can best be summed up in one gif:
Seriously, the man does not stop! We’re still not sure if he actually sleeps, or if he’s figured out a way to survive without it. Whatever his secret is, we love him for it. It’s his endless tenacity and willingness to experiment that’s helped our Live department grow in such an exciting direction. For Adam, there’s no challenge too big. When he wants something, he goes for it, and nine times out of ten he totally nails it.
We couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to the man behind the live event magic, Adam Calvary…
What do you do at Family Industries?
I’m in the Event Director for Family. If you’re interested in an activation for your event, I’m your go to guy. My job can consist of anything from helping create ideas for activations that pair well with certain locations, themes, or demographics to bringing those ideas to life, and anything in between.
I spend most my day in email land, dialing in budgets or on the phone talking with clients and suppliers to help piece together a vision for an event and make sure it all lines up. When I have time, I love being able to seek out new and exciting things to add to our repertoire of Live Activations.
What piece of clothing that you own could you not live without?
Honestly, I think the world would be better off without clothing all together. Though working in the garment industry, I do see how stupid that is to say.
That being said, I love my hats and converse shoes!!!! Can’t pick one, cause it would be hard to survive without both.
“THE OVER-SHARE QUESTIONNAIRE”
When he isn't working all through the night, Adam sometimes writes charmingly sad poems and turns them into lo-fi, poorly recorded songs.
