Accessible Dispatch Driver of the Week: Meet Adam!
A musician originally from Eugene, Oregon, Adam loves exploring the city. He drives part-time while playing music in various Broadway shows. For him, driving an accessible taxi is about making a difference.
“At first when I got this car I thought, ‘okay a bigger car’. Then when I started to see firsthand the true meaning of having an accessible cab I became very glad to part of this company and part of the people who make a difference.”
Adam knows first-hand how much of a difference one person can make. When he first came to New York City, he gave a ride to a friendly stranger, and the two of them got to talking music.
“He asked me questions such as what do I play, how long, etc.,” Adam recalls. At the time, he had training and passion but no experience in the industry, having previously been an anesthesiologist.
The two of them continued talking and then the stranger gave Adam a business card and instructed him to call the number on it when he had the chance.
“He said to me that he could see the love and passion I have for music,” Adam says. He called the number about 3 days later and was invited to audition.
“Three weeks later I got the call to work at a small play and then my career started to bloom from there,” says Adam. His friendly passenger was, it turned out, one of the people in charge of the production of the musical Cats. If it wasn’t for him I probably would not be where I am today.
