Adam posted his first time (Runway Agent 0:24) in March 2018 after watching RWhiteGoose's well known GoldenEye SpeedLore series. He slowly rose up the ranks, getting times like Dam Agent 53 and Runway Agent 22 within a month of posting his first time. He has built up a small but steady Twitch viewership on his Twitch Channel.

He gained notoriety in The Elite for his early streams captured with a webcam with a mirror being used as a facecam, which he dubbed as the “Highest Quality Webcam Stream Twitch has to offer.” Some of his more lofty goals include tying the untied Runway 00 Agent 0:28 set by Ryan "Graviton" Gibbs, and getting the Aztec 00 Agent world record whilst skipping the body armor.

Month of Aztec

May 2018, the Month of Aztec, was a special month-long series of streams where Adam would play almost nothing but the Aztec level on all difficulties, with some Statue therapy in between. Adam managed to improve his personal bests from 2:20 to 1:32 on Agent, 2:53 to 1:41 on Secret Agent, and 3:48 to 1:46 on 00 Agent. He compiled the best moments from these streams into a special celebration video.

Videos

Something unique about Adam and something he's been trying keep consistent with his whole career, is that he has a video posted for every improvement on any of his times since his first submitted time. He has also made special celebration videos for more impressive times and events like Dam Agent 0:53 and the aforementioned Month of Aztec in what he calls the "Initiation" playlist.

Adam and his viewers have amassed a total of 532 quotes (As of 12/5/18).
