In a past life Max was a copywriter and creative director who dreamt of becoming a director director.
After a decade at ad agencies such as Jung von Matt, Mother and BBDO in Berlin and New York he jumped ship not long after his directorial debut for a little smoothie company called True Fruits won a Cannes Lion.
Since then he's been living he dream, fathered a couple of children, gained a bit of weight and lost a lot of pitches. He also won a few jobs for clients like Vodafone, Haribo and The North Face and picked up a few oddly shaped pieces of metal most which now decorate his mum's toilet.
