Hi there, I’m Max. For the past few years I’ve been a policy wonk working in the world of think tanks (IPI), academia (NYU), and the United Nations. For more on that, drop me a line or check out my LinkedIn profile:

Outside work, I look for inspiration in photography, the human mind, cutting-edge innovation, and the latest of space exploration – I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote (H. Melville). I enjoy nothing more than spending time with my loving wife and being on the road with my army-issued backpack – through 60+ countries and counting (recognized and self-declared, such as Somaliland). My photography is a testimony to these travels. I’m sharing with you a perspective you might not expect: snapshots of moments filled with presence, each with its own and unique story. Human experiences and the world around us – as we see it, and as we could.

Finally, none of this would be what it is without my amazing muse, Kanije. Thank you for being the beautiful soul you are!

I invite you to explore my photography portfolio (prints for sale!), follow me on Instagram or get in touch.
