We had the good fortune of connecting with Adam Davis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Adam, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I’m from Columbus Ohio! My background definitely has a lot to do with who I am now. As a kid I spent lots of time with my family and friends who held me accountable and pushed me to be the best. I love creating and exploring. My mom was the type of person to make me redo it until it was right. I hold a lot of those same values today! I try to make sure I give my best every single time.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I model, act and direct. I think I am most proud of getting put in Vogue. I got to where I am today by working from the ground up. I had the opportunity to go viral from visiting my little brother in Ohio. Once I did that it got a lot easier. I was invited to meet ups and did tfp to build a portfolio. Once I did that I got signed to an agency and began booking big roles! I want the world to know that it isn’t always about getting to the mountain top but it’s about what you learn on the way to your goal. I learned so much about myself and picked up skills that I never knew I needed if it had not been for my journey

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
So I would definitely take them to Nick & Sam’s! They have the best steak I have ever eaten in my life. Next we would go to my favorite vintage thrift store Dolly Python. I would also make sure that I take them to the galleria. It is a nice sized mall and a lot bigger than my hometowns . For night life we would go to deep Ellum and bar hop. For brunch we would definitely either go to Yolk

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My mom, she pushes me to be the best. She has always been there for me even when I wasn’t there for myself
