Hi! I'm Max, and I'm an author.
I'm one of the few writers who have competed against a class of San Quentin inmates in a literary death match.
Technology, science and the future have been interests since I was a boy. It's why I've built every desktop computer I've owned, why I took a single literature class in college—Science Fiction—and why I write about technology and science. I've written about those subjects for BYTE, Motherboard, and VentureBeat.
The journalism I practice includes publication in The Daily Beast, San Francisco Examiner, SF Weekly, IndieWire, The Bold Italic, and The Economist.
I've also written poetry, scripts—film, directed and written theater—short fiction, as well as commercial work (speeches, ghost writing, marketing copy).
Sometimes I tell stories through digital video.
