Born in Sydney 1949, Max moved to Perth in 1964, where he studied architecture at Perth Technical College and the Western Australian Institute of Technology. In 1990 Max commenced his own practice as a registered architect, designing passive solar houses.

In 1995 his career took an exciting turn when he commenced designing and making jewellery and sculptures full time.  Max brings his love of design and his eye for detail to the precious objects he constructs. “My main passion is solving design issues. My second passion is inventing and building solutions to them. I design and make objects to reflect my love of simplicity and, at the same time, to cleverly use materials in an individual way. My work is design driven. I try to re-invent the wheel every time”.
