About Me

  • I live outside of Bordeaux France with my family, but we usually call the California Bay Area home.
  • I am currently taking a break from professional work, while I figure out the next steps in my life and career.
  • For the past decade or so I worked at Autodesk in sustainable design, learning, and community.
  • I sometimes post photography on Instagram and ideas on Twitter, and I am becoming more active on LinkedIn. I very rarely use facebook, but you can find me there too.
  • I help lead the Greenermind community, which hosts a gatherings for purpose-driven people in the Bay Area and near Washington DC.
  • A side project I'm excited about is the Ritual Design Toolkit, which is a collaboration with my friend Arvind.
  • My wife Julie is amazing and inspires me every day. She is starting to post interesting tidbits on Tumblr, and is also on Twitter.
  • I'm originally from Syracuse, NY - where my dad and mom run a family business called Hollowick.
  • I've worked previously at Jump Associates, echomusic, Dell, and New Venture Gear.
  • When in the Bay Area, we split our time between our primary residence in Oakland (a small co-housing project) and our place in the Santa Cruz Mountains (Camp Stellar).
  • Get in touch with me at adam.menter [at] gmail.com or at LinkedIn.
