As the Homework Café Director, Max comes to Fusion Academy Los Gatos with rich experience in working with children and young adults. He earned a BS with a major in Sociology as well as minors in both Business and Philosophy from the University of Oregon. Max was the director of a mountain biking program at an all-boys wilderness camp in Wisconsin where he worked for two separate summers.
