Growing up, he attended school at Mahnomen Public School and graduated from Circle of Life Academy. Following high school, Kat Dog entered the workforce. He later furthered his education with some college classed specializing in Carpentry and continued to work various jobs including at Minnesota Dehydrated Vegetables Inc. in Fosston, MN, and at the Homeless Shelter in Mahnomen. Adam also worked on and off at the Shooting Star Casino, first in Maintenance, then Buffet Department and was currently working with the Banquets Department.
