Max grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Katy, Texas. He was an AmeriCorps volunteer in Northern California for the Marin Conservation Corps, working at the Audubon Canyon Ranch among Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets. After earning a Bachelor’s degree from Prescott College in Field Biology, emphasizing Ornithology, Max traveled extensively collecting data on (among other things) baboons in South Africa, birds in Wyoming, wildfire in Colorado, and an oil spill on the Gulf Coast.
Max’s thesis at Prescott College, for which he was honored as a presenter at his baccalaureate, focused on avian recolonization in wildfire areas in Southeastern Colorado. He designed and implemented a two year study evaluating the avian communities present within fire sites of different ages in Mesa Verde National Park. Max also completed Duke University’s Nonprofit Management certification program in Raleigh Durham, North Carolina.
When not at Audubon, Max can be found in the kitchen or outside with his wife, Michelle, and their sons, Bennett and Jack.
