Adams was brought up in a religious and politically active family. After attending Harvard College, his focus became political once he graduated.
As soon as he arrived in Massachusetts, he quickly established himself as an influential voice at town meetings and in the legislature, speaking out against British taxation policies that burdened colonists with higher taxes and tariffs than were necessary.
In the 1760s, he founded and became leader of the Sons of Liberty movement and led protests against the Stamp Act and Townshend Revenue Acts, which levied tariffs on imported paper, glass, lead, and tea into America.

He utilizes various materials in his work. For instance, he has produced napkins, matchbooks, bartender uniforms, drawings and other editioned yet functional bar accoutrements used during actual drinking processes.
His practice revolves around refusal and soft resistance as an integral theme in his work, specifically how people may produce mass quantities by refusing to comply with dominant capitalism or corporatist ideologies. Furthermore, his interest lies in creating objects not meant for exhibition but activated through drinking sessions instead.
