Quadriplegic since a 1983 sports accident, Adam Lloyd has maintained an extremely active life in the academic, business, and writing fields.
He holds a B.A. in philosophy from the University of California at San Diego, an M.A. in philosophy from the Catholic University of America, an M.A. in national security studies from Georgetown University, an M.A. in English from Georgetown University, and is currently a doctoral student in English at the University of Maryland.
Recognizing a severely under served market in disability related travel services, Lloyd began his journalistic career in 1998 writing about these issues on a freelance basis for Public Radio International's Savvy Traveler, British Airway's High Life magazine, and Abilities magazine.
Since that time, Lloyd has broadened the scope of his freelance writing to include non-disability features on dining, travel, cigars, business, music, gambling, and has become a frequent guest on KLAC radio's Travel Show. His articles have appeared in publications such as Virginia Living, Cigar Aficionado, Heartland USA, Porthole Magazine, Cruise Travel Magazine, and United Airline's Hemispheres, among others. Lloyd is a member of Washington Independent Writers and the North American Travel Journalists Association.
Lloyd's interests include travel, live music, premium cigars, reading historical fiction, poker, baseball, and debating politics. Some of his favorite destinations are Costa Rica, Germany, Las Vegas, New York, and the Caribbean.
