Max is a rising Junior at Carnegie Mellon University studying Behavioral Economics, Policy, and Organizations with a Minor in Humanities Analytics. Originally from Western Maryland, Max grew up with a deep understanding of sustainable practice, which came from his parents as well as through the Amir Project, a farm-based Summer camp education program. This eventually lead him to become a Farm Coordinator and later, a Farm Manager at his respective Summer camp, teaching campers about horticulture, food justice, and sustainable lifestyle practices.
Max’s interest in environmental advocacy, public policy, and data science have drawn him to Plant Five for Life, where he will work as a Data and Curriculum Development Intern. He hopes to dovetail his previous Summer work in food justice and sustainability with his coursework in statistics and behavioral psychology to advocate for the planet and underrepresented communities. Outside of work and school, Max is the current Greek Sing Chair for his fraternity, Phi Delta Theta. He also raises his own plants and longboards.
