Senior Review Editor


Max’s background as a climber, cyclist, and wildlife ecologist has led to much time spent in the outdoors. Over the years he has worked and adventured in national parks on 4 continents, mapped thousands of acres of forest, and designed a statistical model to help combat the negative impacts of natural gas drilling. After a brief stint studying ecology and conservation in the UK, Max is happy to call the Sierra home, though he does miss the maple syrup making opportunities afforded by his previous stomping grounds in the northeast.
