Adam is a lifelong builder who began building skate ramps as a kid and continued his love for craft in high school woodshop. He began his own company in 2006 with longtime friend and ramp-building partner, Matt Douthwright, as his right hand man. In 2015, the business was incorporated and the name became A Clarke Construction, Inc.
Doing things the right way and taking pride in your work are company benchmarks. "It's much easier to teach good habits early than to undo years of bad ones". Adam believes in this so much he has formed partnerships with local schools to give cooperative learning opportunities to deserving students. Some of whom have earned full-time spots on his crew.
In his spare time, Adam enjoys racing and watching motorcross with his two sons as well as working on his own home.

He was eager to join Adam at the inception of his construction business and has played an integral role every day since. Currently he serves as a Lead Supervisor where he thrives guiding the team through each project. He also finds fulfillment using his skills to renovate his own home.
