Adam graduated from Scarsdale High School in 2000, attended Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla. and received a sound-engineering certificate from the Institute for Acoustic Research in New York City.

He then worked at several recording and broadcasting studios, where he provided audio support for programs like "Imus in The Morning," and musical groups like Phish and the Beach Boys. For much of the past decade, Adam worked on Nantucket in landscaping and in many phases of residential construction. Adam’s passions – which he pursued with enthusiasm and which gave him great joy – included listening to all kinds of music and playing the guitar for himself and his friends, innovative cooking (without recipes or constraints), cultivating herbs and vegetables (on which he lavished tender loving care), talking about current events (he was an avid follower of national and international news), nature (about which he was self-taught and very knowledgeable) and sports (which he could talk about endlessly).

Adam was an extremely kind and deeply caring person. He was loyal to his many friends, and he was deeply loved by his family. During his all too brief life, Adam touched the hearts of many people and for that he will be sorely missed. He is survived by his mother and father, Susan and Howard Bloom; his sister and brother-in-law, Mimi Bloom and Matthew DuBeck; and his grandparents, Rita Philipson and John Koss.
