Max is one of the foremost experts combining the latest technology with evidence-based nutrition and the wisdom of the ages to radically upgrade the modern human for increased creativity, productivity and wellbeing. He recently keynoted the Biohacker Summit in Stockholm, Sweden, Europe's premier conference on biohacking, and has given talks on "hacking" the brain at Soho House in NYC and LA and Equinox's 2016 High Performance Living Symposium.

Brain Longevity

Dementia is an unprecedented economic drain with rates expected to explode in the coming years, but for the first time in history, there is hope. Max is a leading lecturer on the topic of dementia prevention, able to distill the latest science on how food and lifestyle (like sleep, exercise, and even temperature) can modulate aging and risk for cognitive decline. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, on NBC Nightly News, and has lectured at the New York Academy of Sciences, University of Illinois' Center for Nutrition, Learning and Memory, and is a visiting teacher at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. He is particularly passionate about speaking to millennial audiences, since changes begin in the brain decades before the first symptom.

Mental Health

More than 300 million people are now living with depression, which is the leading cause of ill health and disability worldwide. Stress runs rampant, with your average millennial missing one entire night of sleep per month due to stress. Max explores the toll that these factors take on our mental health, including our industrial diets, chronic stress, and sleep debt. As an expert on the role of food in brain function, Max distills the latest science linking our choices (including specific foods) to how we feel, along with easy and practical tactics to combat stress and improve wellbeing. Audiences walk away inspired and equipped with highly actionable steps that they can take to support a happier, less anxious, and more resilient brain.
