Adam Hurd is a writer and comedian. He came to NYC in search of some kind of meaning to life and found improv instead. Working with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater as an intern and a student, he learned improv and comedy writing from some of the best comedians in the world. After it shut down, Adam decided to commit to a future as a storyteller. He started a business running narrative and experience-focused tabletop role-playing games that has continued to grow over the last three years. Outside of his main work, Adam freelances as a story consultant and video game writer. He is currently the lead writer on an upcoming VR game. He can’t say much about it but swears it’s real.
Adam was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder when he was 18. It has impacted his life heavily, ruining relationships and getting in the way of many different life goals. However, it has also created a rich library of emotions and experiences that Adam utilizes in all his creative pursuits. He is a strong advocate for psychotropic medication and well versed in talking people through their fears about the intersection of meds, the self, and creativity.
