Adam Hirsch: Financial Planner by Day & Founder of MNiCards

Adam Hirsch and his dog on the Stone Arch BridgeMeet one of our newest alumni makers, Adam Hirsch (B.A. '14, College of Liberal Arts). Read on to hear the story behind the founding of MNiCards!

"I was born in New York, grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and have lived in Minnesota for the last 10 years.  Since I moved to Minneapolis, I've been on a quest to do something expressive and exciting, while also making a positive splash in the community. After graduating from the University of Minnesota, I began my financial services career in corporate America. I was missing an element of creativity in my day-to-day life, which is when I started to draw.

In a world of technology, never underestimate the power of a hardcopy greeting card. I've always enjoyed purchasing cards for family and friends, so I thought there was an opportunity for me to be creative and reach the community on my own - that's how MNiCards began."
