After an internship heading into his senior year, Max realized that finance wasn't the career path he wanted to take. He connected with a college alumni who started a sports and apparel company, Destination Athlete. Max ended up purchasing his own franchise and ran it for a year, with YoY sales of 160%.
Max choose to sell the franchise once he came to the conclusion that he wanted to work for a startup. He cold-emailed the CEO of MikMak after hearing her on a podcast, which eventually led to an interview and a job.
Max was a finance major at The College of New Jersey. He was a four-year starter and two-time captain of their football team.
