As an engineer at heart, Max brings a unique perspective to every project he is involved with. He comes to SE Group with a natural genuineness, compassion, and integrity to every team he is a part of. Max’s irrepressible curiosity and drive for his passions in life has landed him in the mountain planning team – the perfect combination of engineering, problem solving and skiing. His love for engineering is derived from his early days at the ski hill, becoming mesmerized by the machines that so effortlessly carried thousands of people through the air up into the mountains.


Max specializes in computer automated design (CAD) – using the latest technologies to bring concepts and ideas from thought to reality. Max has experience with the inner workings of mountain resorts from his time as a ski racing and freestyle coach. His countless hours on skis and keen eye for the details of his surroundings has given Max a natural compass for what makes a ski resort thrive and what makes it yard sale. Max has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Bucknell University.

Outside the Office

Raised in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, the woods are Max’s playground all seasons of the year. In the winter Max is on skis at any opportunity, dropping into rocky chutes, ripping through the trees, or getting technical in the terrain park. In the warmer months, Max can be found backpacking his way through the 46ers, sailing or camping on Lake George in NY or playing golf with his friends. As a new Salt Lake City resident, Max is excited to explore his newest outdoor playground that is the Wasatch Range.
