It was in 2002, at the age of 15, that Adam started his television career with a guest appearance on the BBC daytime soap opera Doctors. It was another four years before Adam would rise to fame in his breakthrough role as Donte Charles in the BBC drama series Waterloo Road of which he was an original cast member upon its inception in 2006.
The role of Donte led Adam to enjoy guest appearances in popular hospital drama Casualty in 2008 in which he played a boxer, as well as a second appearance in Doctors in 2007. He also appeared as himself on ITV gameshow All Star Family Fortunes alongside his older brother and fellow actor Ryan.
In early 2009 it was confirmed that Adam was to leave Waterloo Road at the end of the fourth series due to his character having finished his education at the fictional school. Adam's final episode was broadcast 20 May 2009.
Following his departure from his most famous role, Adam signed on for his third appearance on daytime soap Doctors, this time playing a character called Ben Hamilton. The episode aired on 26 May 2009.
