Hey, I’m Max!

I’m a Product Designer with a background in front-end code.

I live in Oakland, California and like to surf and write rock music.

Professional Work

CaseBase: Case View
February 2016 – July 2018

I helped a law firm work more efficiently by enabling everyone on their team — attorneys, paralegals, and accountants — to use their custom-built CRM.


CaseBase: Reports View
February 2016 – July 2018

I saved attorneys 2+ hours of busywork per week by simplifying their reporting workflow.



Personal Projects

UI Animation Study
December 2018 – February 2019

I deconstructed part of the Nintendo Switch's UI to hone my motion design skills.




I value design that is obvious and the good kind of lazy.

Before I was a designer, I was a front-end developer at eBay Classifieds. We built responsive web sites that served millions of people in Mexico, Canada, and South Africa.

I love music, especially blues and funk. Once upon a time, I played guitar in a Southern Rock band.
