Adrian is graduate of Purdue University with a Bachelors in Clinical Psychology and minor in Ethology. He went to school on a sports scholarship for soccer and after graduation was invited to the Major League Soccer Combine in '94. That year, he opted to leave to Europe where he would spend a season training with Red Star F.C. in St. Ouen, France. After being sidelined due to an unfortunate injury, Adrian would pass his time doing what he loved most-training dogs. It didn't take him long before he found local clubs to train with. The fully immersive experience in the culture of French Ringsport was pivotal in his journey to understand the philosophy and training methods that he still employs today.
