Adam Dougherty

The creative force behind KreatureKid, Adam has been passionate about monsters and practical effects from a young age. Growing up in a creative and spooky family, Adam began assembling and painting monster model kits with his father, sparking his lifelong love for creature creation. By the age of 12, he was sculpting his own monsters, and by 15, he was receiving commissions for his work. After honing his skills and gaining experience in Hollywood, working on major projects like "Maze Runner: The Death Cure," "Ender's Game," "The Predator," and HBO’s "Watchmen," Adam returned to Colorado. There, he founded KreatureKid to provide a space for innovative and high-quality practical effects outside the traditional hubs of Los Angeles and New York. Adam's dedication to craftsmanship and his vision for blending traditional techniques with modern technology drive the success and unique charm of KreatureKid.
