Based: Seattle, WA
Max is not only a crazy good snowboarder, but he is also a very accomplished and competent mountaineer. As a Seattle local, you can find him in the Cascades from summer to winter. Max was on Naked and Afraid, so there is no doubt that he knows the outdoors inside and out. All around Max is an incredible human. He is a huge advocate for Black Lives Matter, the environment, and spending time responsibly and full-heartedly in the outdoors. Max started a nonprofit called PNWealth Foundation that aims to get BIPOC, underserved, and underprivileged kids into the outdoors. His wealth of knowledge and experience is so fruitful and important. There is no one better to be in the backcountry with.
