My name is Max Nussenbaum and I’m twenty-six. This is my web site.
I’m originally from Newton, Massachusetts, and did my time at the infamous Newton North High School before graduating from Wesleyan University in 2012 with a double major in English (High Honors) and government (very little honor). After graduation, I moved to Detroit as part of Venture for America’s inaugural class and spent two years as a design and business guy at Are You a Human.
This web site has been around in some form or another since 2001, when I bought a book about HTML and read it instead of paying attention to my fifth-grade teacher.
I can be reached by email at .
