Hi! Iā€™m Max šŸ‘‹

I like data, software engineering, and building companies.

In 2015, I co-founded Feature Labs. We built machine learning software used by tens of thousands of developers worldwide.

After running Feature Labs as CEO for 4 years, we were acquired by Alteryx (NYSE: AYX) to form their Innovation Labs where we worked to democratizing machine learning for their 300,000 customers. In particular, I led the development of a new cloud AutoML product from inception to commercial availability while quadrupling the original Feature Labs team to 40 software engineers.

Before that, I studied computer science at MIT, where I did research in the Data to AI Lab.

I also invest in and advise early-stage startups, including time as a founding member of Dorm Room Fund in Boston, where I invested in 20+ student-founded startups.
