Visiting Full-Time Lecturer in English

Max first arrived at Northeastern in 2006 as a bright eyed, twenty two year-old graduate student. Now a grizzled veteran with more than ten years’ experience, Max specializes in First-Year Writing and Advanced Writing in the Business Administration Professions, but he doesn’t play favorites. In his teaching, Max prioritizes process over product and values collaboration, co-creation, and community more than individual accomplishment. He presents composition as an ongoing, social exercise in problem solving and strategic decision making rather than a decontextualized, academic exercise. Max enjoys getting to know students and encouraging intellectual and personal growth.

His doctoral research considered intersections of early American economic and literary history. In his spare time, Max enjoys long distance running, baseball, football, and the music of Bruce Springsteen.
