Max has spent a decade focused exclusively on how the built environment can improve the experience of aging for older adults around the world. He has spoken to audiences on regional and national stages about placemaking for older adults beyond traditional senior living settings, cutting edge environments for people living with dementia and the transformative role of technology in the aging journey.
His perspectives and design work have been featured in a variety of industry publications, as well as the New York Times. Max currently serves on the Board of Directors for The Loomis Communities in Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley and is an Advisory Committee member for Dementia Friendly Pennsylvania.
Max lives in Pittsburgh with his wife, daughter, cat, and dog; and splits his remaining time between his church community, live theater, and playing complicated board games.
