My projects fall into four categories: day job, freelance, math, coaching and hobby. I try to limit myself to one project at a time in each category so I don't get too bogged down. My interests are varied, but I am usually working on things related to programming, education, mathematical research, or sports.

Day Job

I am currently a Software Engineer at SUSE (via their aquisiation of Rancher) in their Tempe, AZ office. I am really enjoying working in the containization space, specifically with Kubernetes cluster provisioning. This is a hot area to be in with steep professional growth.


I decided to move my freelance work to an actual business. You can check out dadams solutions llc to get details.

Previously, I built and designed websites for clients. I also extended some functionality and improved automation for a company which allowed them to grow much more quickly than they previously thought possible.


While I did discontinue pursuit of a PhD in mathematics, I will continue to read about and research mathematical topics. Right now, I am reviewing Iwasawa Theory in order to strengthen my Galois theory, class field theory, and homology theory knowledge.

You can see more information about my previous research here.


I enjoy coaching basketball at the high school level. Teaching young men and women the fundamentals of the game and watching them grow as a team is edifying. Currently, I am the head JV-A boys basketball coach at St. Mary's Catholic High School in Phoenix, AZ.

I have a page dedicated to my coaching experience and philosophy.


I have several hobby projects in mind at any one time. Currently, I am working on an HTML form email backend. I am planning to use it for peronal use, but may turn into something I can open to others if the opportunity arises.
