Max is interning at Development Seed, improving the Missing Maps experience, and contributing to models that map disaster risk. He is trained in building solid frontend tools and well-defined workflows.
Before joining Development Seed, Max interned at the American Red Cross, where he applied his training to assist the GIS team and their drone mapping efforts in the Philippines. He has worked to clean field data collected by the OSM community in West Africa, and mapped landslides in Malawi for the NASA DEVELOP program as part of his university’s humanitarian mapping society.
Max has hosted numerous mapathons for students to contribute to Humanitarian OpenStreetMap tasks at George Washington University. He graduated from there this past spring, and majored in both Geography and International Affairs.
