Max started her career in London, England, where she worked in marketing & promotions for several print titles, including Attitude, Penthouse, The Fortean Times, and Viz Comic. She went on to work at Virgin Radio, and well, if you can remember the Virgin Radio days, then you weren’t really there.
Max relocated to Los Angeles in 2000—via a short stint in Thailand—opening-up and running the stateside office for Moving Pictures —a boutique movie magazine that published dailies at film festivals and markets around the world, in addition to producing a glossy quarterly newsstand and subscriber title.
After MoPix went bust in 2012, Max was offered a reporter position at The Globe and National Enquirer—and so began a new career in entertainment & news journalism. Over the span of 16 years, Max worked her way up through the ranks of reporter, writer, editor, executive editor, and bureau chief—with various print and online titles, including, Star magazine, Life & Style, RadarOnline.com, and MailOnline.com—until she became Editor in Chief of the music-centric pop culture website, Popdust.com.
Eventually tiring of the bullshit, grueling hours, stress, office politics, and toxicity that go hand in hand with the entertainment news industry, Max decided it was time for a drastic life change.
Cue Mexico City, where she moved to in 2016, with the aim of painting, writing, and building her own company. And so the story begins.
