Adam Horowitz, who attended Hunter College High School in New York City, is best known for his work as a screenwriter and producer on such popular TV series as "Felicity" and "Lost."

While majoring in political science and communication arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he met fellow writer Edward Kitsis, with whom he began a long-term collaboration and friendship. After graduating from college in 1994, Horowitz, along with Kitsis, moved to Los Angles to pursue his writing ambitions. After working several assistant and messenger jobs, in 1998 Horowitz landed on the writing team of the '90s reboot of "Fantasy Island." The show was canceled after just 13 episodes and in 2001 Horowitz found work as a writer and producer on the popular collegiate drama "Felicity." He maintained his relationship with creator J.J. Abrams while working on shows like the teen soap opera "One Tree Hill" and the comic book adaptation "Birds of Prey," and in 2005 he joined "Lost" as a series writer and co-executive producer. In addition to sharing an ensemble Writers Guild Award for their work on the popular show, Horowitz and Kitsis wrote almost of all their episodes as a team, and many of them, like the Hurley backstory episode "Tricia Tanaka is Dead," are fan favorites. In 2010 the pair wrote the screenplay for "Tron: Legacy," a sequel to the cult '80s fantasy film, and in 2011, they co-created "Once Upon a Time," a series that explores fairy tale stories in modern day Maine.
