Hi! My name is Max and I am a music producer, composer, audio engineer, video game sound designer, pianist, and educator. I did my Bachelors of music degree at the Berklee College of Music on the North American tour scholarship and my Masters of music degree at New York University. During my college years:
I have studied jazz with all time greats at Berklee such as Joanne Brackeen, Lazlo Gardony, Yoko Miwa and Bobby Sanabria at NYU.
I studied mixing with luminaries such as Sean Slade (Radiohead), Ted Paduck and Kevin Killen, game audio with Jean Luc Cohen.
During my time at NYU, I was pianist in Grammy winning percussionist Bobby Sanabria's Jazz recording ensemble for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.
I specialize in jazz and classical piano, mixing and audio engineering. Among my achievements are performances in Benaroya Hall, Shanghai Music Hall, two nationwide tours in China and house gigs at both TG house Jazz Club and OakNose Jazz club in Chengdu,China. In my composition career, I have co-written music for Chinese Pop stars 尚士达 and over 1 billion streams on the Chinese music app Netease for my music.
