About Adam Kittrell
Adam Kittrell is a Senior Associate and foreman of the wood and metal shop at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub at Winrock International, a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of Arkansans by inspiring innovation and expanding opportunity. His role in the woodshop includes teaching classes, ensuring all machines are running safely, and making merchandise for the Hub Store.
Adam’s interest and experience in working with wood and metal began at an early age due to his family’s dairy farm located outside of Yellville Arkansas near the Buffalo River. Adam received scholarships to attend Arkansas Tech University, and he was the shop supervisor for the Theatre department. After graduating with a degree in Recreation and Parks Administration, he had various jobs across the country, including full-time volunteering for almost two years with Heifer International in Arkansas and Massachusetts.
Adam enjoys volunteering and helping others learn about woodworking. If not in the wood shop, he can often be found on the Buffalo River either hiking or floating, or working on his mother’s hobby farm.
