From a very young age, Max was always curious about the world around him, both natural and man-made. He explored on his own, through school, and with the help of his family – always excited about new things he encountered. Through this, he learned that the world works best when the natural and man-made operate in symbiosis. That philosophy is what he considers to be the mission statement for XPRIZE and hopes that in his new position he can continue to explore the world and help it at the same time.
Originally from New York, Max earned his BS with honors in Information Systems from the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University. Although he has always maintained a special connection to the Atlantic Coast, he currently resides in LA where he feels he’s always belonged. Max loves the outdoors - especially the ocean – and he can commonly be found at the beach or riding his bike any chance he gets.
