He is a registered professional engineer in several states and the District of Columbia. He is a fellow in both the American Society of Engineers and the Institute of Transportation Engineers. He is also a former part-time lecturer at both California State University, Long Beach, and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, where he taught graduate and undergraduate courses in transportation planning, traffic engineering, and highway design.

Mr. Adams has a long history of involvement in community and government service. He has held positions in city government and has sat on the boards of several county agencies. He is based in Parsons' Washington, D.C., office.
