Born and raised in the North Georgia mountains, Adam grew up in the carpet industry. After earning a degree from Georgia Southern University in International Business, he took a job in San Francisco selling carpet. After discovering the industry was not for him, he returned to school to obtain a degree in hotel management. Starting at the bottom, he worked his way up the hotel ladder from front desk to Director of Sales, all while learning the boutique hotel operations. With entrepreneurship tugging, he decided to return to his Georgia roots and try his hand at the hotel business. His vision for Stone Mountain Manor is a blend of historical, southern elegance with a fresh, California perspective.
