His experience as a teacher has helped him transition into his work as a teaching artist. Max has 22 years of experience and has performed widely in both the real and virtual world. He provided musical accompaniment for the Bethesda Dance Festival and was a featured beat boxer on Verizon's beat box mixer. He organized the 2003 DC Beat Box Expo and released a beat box themed DVD.
