Max grew up in Chicago around visual arts, both traditional and contemporary. He started his career in post-production as an assistant editor at the venerable Optimus. In the early aughts, while learning the ropes in the final days of film to tape he found a calling for motion graphics and design. After transitioning to freelance, his skill-sets eventually pushed him into interactive media working on small to massive scale installations for trade shows, museums, live performances and brand activations. This broke open the world of 3D design and game development. In 2016 he moved to New York and after an exciting jaunt through various studios as a freelance 3D artist, he relocated to LA to set up shop around the gaming industry.
One of his core passions, since he was a boy, has been music. In addition to engineering and producing other artists and collaborators, he writes and produces as a solo artist and has released music under several collaborations all the way from duo to small band, into being an integral member of full ensemble orchestras. He has been DJing and performing since he was a teenager and has actively worked to combine his work as a visual artist with his passion for music and performance. He also enjoys cooking and skateboarding at night.
