Bonnie met Adam accidentally when he dialed the wrong number and Bonnie answered the phone. After several phone conversations, Adam and Bonnie agreed to meet for a date, but Adam backed out at the last minute because he was afraid of revealing his disability. He eventually moved in with Bonnie.

Adam is funny, intelligent, independent and enjoys drinking beer and having sex. He left Bonnie when he found employment as a stunt coordinator for a film shooting overseas.

Adam’s character was introduced as a recurring role during season 3 (2015-16) and became a regular character during season 4 (2016-2017).

Adam was criticized by some viewers because his character was not played by a disabled person.
