Adam Luger ’06
When he was a prospective student, one unique fact about FJA (then the Jewish Academy of Metropolitan Detroit – JAMD) that stuck out to Adam Luger ‘06 was that it gave students the ability to be self-starters. Whether it was starting a club, a new sports team, or even a class, the school was always supportive of students being leaders, and following their passions. “I think this definitely had an impact on me while I was a student at FJA, and, years later, gave me the confidence to start my own business.”
Today, Adam runs his own business, Blue Racer Productions, a small video production company that specializes in wedding films, and also does a lot of work with local non-profit organizations, schools across Michigan, and small businesses. Prior to starting his own business, Adam graduated from Michigan State University with a major in Telecommunications with a focus on Digital Media Arts.
His first stop after graduation? His Alma Mater. Adam worked at FJA for six years as a communications specialist, creating various videos for the school, working on the weekly newsletter (Sof Shavua), and was in charge of the FJA social media channels. He also taught video production and coached JV basketball (in his first season coaching, the team went 12-6).
When reflecting on his time as a student, Adam says “I remember feeling like there was always something amazing that happened every day at JAMD, to the point where I would never want to miss a day of school, or even be late.”
Adam’s friendships with his fellow alumni extend far beyond the walls of FJA. In 2021 alone, he filmed the weddings of 11 alumni (two of those couples met at FJA!). We look forward to seeing many more FJA weddings and exciting projects he films this year and beyond.
