Growing up in Colorado, Max learned at a young age how valuable life experiences are—whether it be skiing and hiking in the Rocky Mountains or sitting around a fire pit with friends. 


He first saw magic at age six, sparking a lifelong interest in how things work, the value of storytelling, and how we interpret reality. 


Pursuing his fascinations with framing, narrative, and persuasion, Max went to George Washington University to study political communication. Now finishing his junior year, Max is in constant demand for both virtual and in-person shows (perhaps at the expense of school work, but in case his professors are reading this, he’s a voracious student).


The pandemic made Max realize that it’s not magic that people lost. Or entertainment for that matter. What we lost—and ultimately, what we crave—is the opportunity to create memories with the people we love. 


As Max gears up for a lifetime of post-graduate and post-COVID performing, he has two goals in mind: bring people together, and create unforgettable memories. Life is meant to be enjoyed—it’s Max’s mission to make sure that happens. 


Max studied at the world-renowned Tannen’s Magic Camp, where he won the junior and senior stage competitions. Notable performances include Caesars Palace, Disney World, the Smoke and Mirrors Magic Theater, and the Boston Magic Lab. Max also consulted on Magic on the Rocks, the first ever magic show at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Tricks ought to enhance the story the magician tells. By rooting magic in something real—science, art, literature, music, current events—the audience can engage with the magician’s performance on a deeper level than simply asking: How did he do that?
