Adam Keesling

I'm Adam. I live in San Francisco. I'm still figuring out what exactly I do for work.

Most recently, I wrote Napkin Math, a newsletter focused on business and finance. I also helped Every (the bundle that Napkin Math was apart of) with other stuff like production and marketing. I worked for them from the beginning of 2020 to the beginning of 2021.

Before that, I worked as an investment banker at William Blair. While at Blair, I worked on technology deals. I left my banking job at the end of 2019.

Before that, I worked for a training company called Adventis. I helped the founder operationalize and market financial modeling boot camps and recruiting services to undergrad students trying to get jobs in finance. I also taught over 35 boot camps to 1,000+ students around the country. I worked on Adventis for almost four years while in college.

Outside of work, I like running, reading, watching movies, cooking, exploring aesthetics, free writing, and vibing with the homies. I love to make stuff and I love people who love to make stuff.

If you want to hear more from me, subscribe to my newsletter. I write a lot about business, but also about some of my other interests.
