Better Know an LFer: Oliver Adamson

“While some may be intimidated by Oli’s tattoos or his silent demeanor, his British accent or the way he effortlessly pulls off a pair of new cowboy boots with skinny jeans, we here at Lake|Flato found him to be one of the nicest guys on the planet. We gave him the nickname “sweet angel baby”, and named our kickball team after him. Oli has always been quick to jump to lend a hand, whether helping manage the materials library, staying late to help out with a project deadline, building an arena out of cans for the food bank, or mentoring our high school intern. His enthusiasm for learning new things and participating fully in San Antonio life will be missed when he heads on to his next adventure in his rickety 1976 GMC cargo van. We wish you all the best, Sweet Angel Baby!”
