I've lived in Los Angeles all my life, but have traveled the U. S. extensively playing in bands (which is a whole other story). I studied archaeology at UCLA and currently serve as a field agent for Atlas Obscura. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and hunting for obscure landmarks around the city. I've been called eccentric, but I just think all this stuff is cool.
I am professionally versed in the history of Hollywood, but my tours also focus on the overlooked aspects of the past- weird architecture, urban legends, celebrity deaths- things like that. There's so much to see that I'm constantly on the lookout for new information to add to my tours.
I know L. A. sometimes gets a bad rap, but I take pride in showing off the things I love about the city- much like you would if I visited you in your hometown. My tours are highly customizable and flexible, so if you have a question or there's something you're really hoping to see, feel free to message me. Let me show you why Los Angeles is one of the greatest cities in the world!
A Recent Review of this guide
This was a great tour! Adam is friendly, knowledgeable & easy to get along with. The tour to the Hollywood sign was fantastic - Adam guides you up really close to the sign and he takes great photos of you. He knew a secret place to park and a section of the trail that others didn't seem to know about. The tour went all the way up the mountain and you end up behind the sign with a fantastic view over LA. Along the way Adam provided facts and stories about the sign, Hollywood and life in LA in general.
