Hello and welcome. My name is Max. I write fiction and edit moving pictures.

A man's favorite animal(s) can tell you a lot about him. Mine are Godzilla, Bigfoot, and the Giant Squid. 

I am the writer and creator of the online episodic graphic novel, Dislocated.

As an editor I specialize in casting and social content. But you'd be on linkedin right now if you were interested in that.

As a writer I authored the critically acclaimed collection of short fiction, We Can't Go Home Again, and the lesser-acclaimed but no less tantalizing non-fiction collection, An Anthology of Madness.

I once was a background actor on television and met P. Diddy on the set of C.S.I. Miami. I told him I loved his work in there. I lied.

My hometown was listed as one of Buzzfeed's 12 Bleakest Places on Earth.

I don't take candy from strangers, but I do talk to them. You can read their stories on iAmYourNeighbor.com.

I once eloped with a woman I met on Twitter while traveling across the country. We are still married today.

While you're reading this, I am at work on my first novel. It's a neo-noir detective story that unfolds over the course of a single muggy and violent Midwest afternoon.

I've also completed a new collection of short fiction. A release date is still pending, but if you type your email address in below, you'll be the first to read it. If you don't type in your email address below, there's no telling what could happen.

Chicago Public Radio just published and recorded one of my stories. It's called Thirst and in the opening line, the world ends. To find out what happens after, you can read/listen here

I don't have any children, but I do take my cats to the park on a leash.

And my biggest regret in life is not considering a scorned lover's ability to later leave Amazon reviews.
