Max is a ginger Jew from New Jersey. A few years ago he walked into design 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, he walked out of his collegiate career ready to take on whatever life threw at him next. Thankfully it wasn't a baseball, because a hard throw would most likely hit him in the face. His work has been recognized by the Art Directors Club of New York (winning the Portfolio Night All Star award), Cannes, D&AD, the Clios, and AI-AP's International Motion Art Awards.
Max is currently an Art Director at Droga5, working on campaigns for Johnsonville, Quilted Northern, Tencent Games and lots of other fun things.
