I'm Max, a ginger Jew from New Jersey. Five years ago, I walked into school wanting to make things and draw stuff, and maybe change the world.


A full ride scholarship, six national awards, and three published books later, I walked out of my collegiate experience ready to take on whatever life threw at me next. I had to be careful though, because I was never very good at baseball, and a hard throw would most likely hit me  in the face. 


I'm currently an Art Director at Droga5 New York, working on campaigns for Johnsonville, Quilted Northern, and Tencent Games among others.
