Hello! I'm Max. I help accelerate online storefronts as a development manager at Shopify. Areas of interest include active transportation, minimalism, privacy, and sustainability.

I'm intermittently active on Mastodon and Twitter.

While you're here, consider taking a few minutes to sign the guestbook.
