Adam Varn is a front-end developer who built his first website in 1997 when he launched “Adam’s Game Reviews” for a local ISP portal. The ISP paid him in video games. To earn actual money for his work, he started building sites in HTML and Cold Fusion.

In 2008, he began creating his first Drupal themes, learning the ins and outs of Drupal site-building and configuration. Before joining Lullabot, he ran his own Drupal development company, where he helped solve problems for non-profits, advocacy organizations, local government, and educational institutions.

Adam’s past clients know him as a clear and timely communicator. This trait and his dedication to front-end development have made him a sought-after resource throughout the Florida Drupal community and beyond. He is a co-founder of his local Drupal Meetup group and is a frequent speaker at Florida DrupalCamp, becoming a co-organizer in 2020.
