Max has been working with hot glass periodically since the age of 12. He was first introduced to glass through flameworking courses in his hometown of Rochester, NY, as well as at the Corning Museum of Glass. In the years since, he has been fortunate enough to receive a summer apprenticeship with Virtu Studio owner and operator Alex Brand.
Max believes that people continue to grow and learn until the day they die, and encourages every individual he meets to make the most of everyday, and to never be afraid to making mistakes. He is the lead employee of Virtu Studio's Make Your Own Glass experience.
