Adam released his first dramatic feature-length film, “Fire Song”, at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015. “Fire Song” went on to win the Air Canada Audience Choice Award at ImagineNATIVE, the world’s largest Indigenous Media Arts Festival before picking up three more audience choice awards and two jury prizes for best film. Even before the film was green-lit for production, the script for “Fire Song” won the WGC's Jim Burt Screenwriting Prize. “Fire Song” can be seen now on Netflix USA.

Adam's second feature, "Great Great Great", picked up awards for Best Film, Best Screenplay, and Best Performance when it premiered at the Canadian Film Festival.

Not content to work only in film, Adam has also distinguished himself as a television writer. He wrote scripts for the series “Cashing In” and “Mohawk Girls."
