Walking the Walk Group Leader, West Chester Network
Born and raised in Philadelphia, with family roots in Kennett Square and Lancaster, Max has lived in Egypt, Oman, California, and Ohio over the course of the past four years. During his time away from Philadelphia, Max earned highest honors in Religious Studies at Kenyon College with a minor in Arabic while also captaining an Ultimate Frisbee team, doing improvisational comedy, and learning how to make a delicious tomato sauce.
Now that he has returned to his hometown, Max works as program coordinator for Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture, helping oversee various projects related to education and intercultural exchange. When not working or studying–for fun!–Max plays basketball, and watches movies with his dogs; if you want to make him very, very happy, just talk with him about film, the 76ers, or religious studies theory.
