los angeles, ca, United States

I am a native of Los Angeles and take pride in showing off all the cool, unique, and downright strange destinations this city has to offer.

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.
