Faces of NoCo: Adam Lega

As part of our ongoing people-on-the-street series, we found Adam Lega setting up small soccer goals in a field along the Poudre River Trail, his young children kicking soccer balls alongside him.

Name: Adam Lega

Where he’s coming from/what he’s doing: “I’m coming from work—managing building information modeling at Farnsworth Group, a design services company—to coach soccer. Believe me, I’m not qualified for the coaching thing, but basically, when we registered our son, he was assigned to a team that said: NEEDS A COACH. So, well…”

What else he does: “I’m an artist and pet lover, and I do comic book and pop art of people’s pets.” (As seen at

What he likes best about FoCo: “Truly, the small-town feel.”

Where he’s often found: “Dog parks, bookstores, and mostly, at home, on the front porch, with the family and talking to neighbors.”

What he’s reading: “Old Man’s War by John Scalzi, a science fiction adventure writer who really is worth checking out. Also, I’m rereading The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.”

What he’s listening to: “RUSH, a Canadian band.”

Why he moved here: “Well, it’s a long story, but I’d summarize it as this: A lifestyle change. We moved from St. Louis for a big overall lifestyle change.”
