I experiment with new ideas, then scale the best ones, like recruiting 1 million volunteers for Obama or running the world's largest bake sale. I know how to build an army.

Bigify LLC: Strategic consulting for progressive groups and campaigns

I have two decades of experience at the leading edge of online campaigning and fundraising, grassroots organizing, communications, and progressive political campaigns.

I was the architect behind MoveOn's successful campaigns to take over the House, Senate, and White House, creating a tech-enabled model of scalable field organizing that has spread throughout the progressive movement.

I helped NARAL Pro-Choice America strengthen their affiliate network. And I spent more than four years growing the Fight for $15, melding traditional communications with digital strategy.

Strategy

I work with organizations to plan and run progressive campaigns, develop political strategy, choose cutting-edge technology, and build capacity to win.

• Planning strategic campaigns for organizing, advocacy, communications, and electoral victories.

• Launching experiments and new programs, to break out of the box but with clear metrics for success.

• Using cutting-edge tech to move people to action.

• Organizational development, including strategic planning, campaign evaluation, and restructuring for organizational change.

Testimonials

The combination of old and new [Internet] organizing strategies really seems to have paid off here.
— Univ. of Washington Prof. Jake Rosenfeld on the Fight for $15, in the New York Times
When we want to launch a new campaign that is outside our core program, I call Adam. I’ve come to rely on his political judgment, his ability to foster coalition relationships, and his management of broad strategies and crucial details.
— Dan Cantor, Working Families Party
Adam is a real pro and we greatly appreciate all he did to help make the campaign the amazing success it has been.
— Fight for $15
