Max is a proud graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts where he concentrated in Acting/Directing within the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television. Throughout his training at Tisch, he realized his passion not only for the arts, but also for broadening access to arts education. He went on to pursue a Master's degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs from NYU Steinhardt and worked in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for two years, evaluating first-year and transfer applications for the two most competitive applicant pools in NYU's history.
Outside of NYU, Max has performed in theatrical productions Off-Broadway and internationally in Florence, Italy. He has worked in the non-profit arts sector with the American Tap Dance Foundation, and has also served on the operations staff of The Tribeca Film Festival.
