Cooper Adams is currently studying theatre with an emphasis in sound and projection design at Colorado State University. Additionally, he works freelance as an audio/visual technician in local schools and churches and hopes to transition into live theatre or motion pictures as an actor/designer and Foley artist upon graduating.
Early Life and Education
Cooper Adams found his early life to be extremely trying. He struggled to adapt to American culture and found himself unable to express his admiration for its nation.
Critics also condemned him for failing to make any significant contribution to America. While he failed in both politics and literature, he found great success writing his history of America.
His views on technology were not widely appreciated during its time, yet they continue to resonate in modern discussions regarding digital divides and technological impacts on society.
Cooper has enjoyed an extensive acting career that spans three decades and counting, which includes playing alongside Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City (1998), playing the lead character in The Beat (2000) and hosting Lonely Planet’s Treks in a Wild World (2000-01).
As soon as he graduated college, he joined the Actors Studio where he made appearances in movies like Wet Hot American Summer (2001) and The Place Beyond the Pines (2012). Additionally, his passion for travel inspired him to participate in numerous international adventures, such as kayaking with Orca whales or ice-climbing in Peruvian Andes.
Laura combines big-picture structural editing with line editing to help writers transform their words from first draft to finished work with pride. She enjoys working on books of various subjects ranging from parenting and reference through cooking and mind/body/spirit.
Achievement and Honors
Cooper led Saint Mary’s men’s soccer to its most successful season ever during his inaugural year as head coach, going undefeated in Western Collegiate Conference play and qualifying for NCAA Tournament play.
He has helped guide players to weekly honors such as West Coast Conference Co-Player of the Week and College Soccer News Player of the Week honors; Alex Christlieb and Dylan Leslie earned All-American status under his direction as well.
Cooper has also spent his time outside coaching working in the performing arts community as an audio/visual technician at local middle schools and churches. Once graduated he aims to pursue a career as a designer/Foley artist for live theater productions as well as motion pictures.
Cooper was raised in Greenville in Bond County, Illinois. He attended Knox College before being admitted to the Illinois Bar in 1867.
On September 17, 1867, he wed Jane O. Barnes, daughter of an influential minister in Galesburg, Illinois. This union produced four children for him: Olivia Denham, Mary Louisa, Charles J. and Genevieve Pearl.
From 1889-1891, he served as Governor of Colorado. Under his watchful eye, thirteen new counties were created along with an orphans home in Denver and reformatory in Chaffee County. Additionally, his influence helped introduce granite rather than sandstone into the design of Colorado’s capitol building and contributed significantly towards creating the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad.
