Max grew up loving the Verde River. He and his wife have two young sons, Jack and Henry, who spend every waking moment outside exploring with their Mom and Dad. Max is an avid fly fisher and hiker with a knack for finding pools filled with native fish deep far from the trailhead. Max holds an MS and PhD in Biology from Arizona State University. His studies took him to China to study the sustainability of the world’s largest inter-basin water transfer, China’s South-North Water Transfer Project. Max is passionate about Verde River conservation and is excited to be a part of the team.
