Max was born and raised in Oregon, attended college in the South, and moved to Arizona shortly after graduating. He holds a degree in International Relations from Hendrix College and has volunteered in the past as a researcher and as an activist with No More Deaths and the Colibri Center for Human Rights. Before becoming involved in border justice issues, Max worked as a camp counselor, as a music instructor, and as a guitar player in the Pacific Northwest’s second-best youth bluegrass band. He enjoys reading, cooking, and road trips. He could not be more thrilled to call Tucson home.
