Adam Blevins

“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next.

What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.

You must look into that storm and shout 'Do your worst, for I will do mine!'

Then the fates will know you as we know you”

― Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

What I Do

IT Project/Program Manager

My career in IT began working on Nuclear Defense Communications Systems, Data Center monitoring, and PC/Network administration in the United States Air Force. That experience led me to many opportunities to provide Leadership and Support Services across various industries, including Classified/Military, Correctional, Academic, Manufacturing, Banking, State Government. Currently, I work in Mergers and Acquisitions leading IT migrations for a Fortune 5 company.

Research

In 2015 I was able to engage and complete a project that had been on my mind for some time, the sustainability of my hometown, Silver Grove KY. An overview of the project: The city of Silver Grove has undergone significant change since it was founded as a "company town" by the C&O Railroad in 1911. The purpose of this study was to determine if the city was feasibly sustainable based on those changes, and its current state. My study consisted of data research from local, state and federal agencies, personal interviews with various stakeholders, surveys of current and past residents, and conversations with outside agencies. At the conclusion, I supplied my findings to City Leadership, and they we still regularly discuss progress and changes. Great things are coming (slowly) to Silver Grove.

Writer

I am a hack writer. Nothing published (yet), but I do have a few rejection letters that I am proud of. Currently, I am slowly hacking away at several projects: a murder mystery, a research essay on global cultural differences related to masculinity/coming of age, and an episodic short fiction series about juvenile delinquents.

Photography

The outdoors, landscapes, architecture, and slices of life are my favorite subjects. I primarily shoot for my own enjoyment, but I occasionally sell images/prints, or give permission to use my work. Contact me directly if you would like to use an image in a publication/online, or to buy prints or canvases.
