Hi, my name's Max. I'm a cat enthusiast with a background in photography, tech support, and journalism. In a previous life, I got my bachelor's in film at Berkeley and my master's in cinematography at Chapman.

In my free time, I write on this blog, purchase extraneous new toys, and watch nerdy videos on YouTube.

You're welcome to get in touch if you'd like to learn more, or even better, if you want to hire me as your photographer 🤑
