Max is a kid entrepreneur with a head full of ideas, a few patents pending, and an awesome basketball-inspired mug designed when he was just eight years old. With a vision that the world would be better if we could play with our food, his playfully creative spirit is evident. He was named one of the ten finalists for the Product Pitch at Fenway contest—an honor which led to him throwing out a pitch at Fenway Park!
Max's venture also raises awareness and support for dyslexia, a cause close to his heart. Max attends a special school dedicated to students with the learning disorder and although it makes reading and writing challenging, dyslexia can benefit creative pursuits like Max's. He and his family emphasize that those with dyslexia see and interpret the world differently, and this silver lining is evident in Max's aptitude for product design.
