Who is Adam Kingman? 'Making It' crafter aspires to be a Disney Imagineer one day
Kingman, the son of Chicago Cubs star Dave Kingman, aspires to be a Disney Imagineer someday
NBC's 'Making It' is back with season three and we cannot help but celebrate the roster of crafters. While some have impressive art backgrounds, most gave up their profession to pursue a career in art and crafts. Adam Kingman didn't make such a heavy compromise though. His day job allows him to be creative and pay the bills. Having studied Industrial Design in college, Kingman has expertise in laying the groundwork for outdoor equipment. More on that, in a bit.
Who is Adam Kingman?
He is passionate about crafting and aspires to become a Disney Imagineer and someday, a design professor. His official bio reads: "Adam is a modern-day Macgyver, using design thinking to create simple, intuitive solutions. Outside of work, Adam loves to write stories, direct short films, and explore the Sierras. Adam believes we’re all just kids at heart and imagination is our finest resource."
Kingman is a recycler and a very good one at that. What he creates for the master craft round will leave you thinking if such a massive level of creativity was even possible. He blends craft and storytelling with effortless ease for the final round. Why? Because it's his story. He pays a tribute to his father, Dave Kingman, the baseball star who played for the Chicago Cubs. But he doesn't lead with that wherever he goes.
When not crafting, Kingman Jr enjoys a day out in the sea and skiing. He is an outdoor person and you could make that out from his beautiful social media feed that is dotted with photos from his travels.
Recently, he posted a picture of him surfing with a caption that read: "Happy first week of summer my friends. wear sunscreen. drink water. and it’s okay to wear neoprene even if your friends call you a wimp."
