In case it still wasn't clear, my name is Max.

I'm from Chicago, IL.

I studied Computer Engineering with a minor in Technology and Management at UIUC.

In my free time I like to climb (bouldering), take pictures (currently rocking a Fuji X-T4), and travel (currently at 7 countries).

Yes, I realize how basic the above interests sound.
