About Max

Hey, I'm Max. I've spent the last five years working in tech banking and private equity, and now I'm getting my MBA at Stanford ('25) and MPA at Harvard ('26). Everywhere I've worked, I've helped lead hiring and establish new recruiting channels. Nothing is more satisfying to me than helping someone get connected to the perfect role for them. My coaching is strategic, concise, and challenging. If you want help landing your dream job / school or want to talk about classical music (I play cello!), skiing, or travel hacking, please reach out.

Why do I coach?

Coming from a non-target undergrad, getting into banking, then private equity, then top graduate schools took hundreds of cold emails, dozens of networking calls, and countless interviews. Getting a job in finance or a top school placement is hard, but it's downright impossible without someone to help coach you along the way. There are no shortcuts to your goal, but I'll help you speed up the process considerably, just as others did for me.
