Hi! Iā€™m Max šŸ‘‹

I like data, software engineering, and building companies.

Currently, I’m a Visiting Scholar in the Data to AI Lab at MIT.

Previously, I co-founded Feature Labs where we built machine learning software used by tens of thousands of people.

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

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+ companies.
