BANG. You've got a new audition! Your lights and camera are ready to go. Now it's time to focus on the SCENE. This role is PERFECT for you...but your work feels like it's missing something.
Several times a week I help fellow actors shoot auditions that they are genuinely excited to send in. A fresh outside perspective and someone to gently pitch you an idea or two is always a great tool. Let me be a tool. Here's what a few of my clients have to say.
" Had the BEST time working my audition with Max. Not only is he so personable and fun, he gave fantastic notes that just opened my audition right up. Thank you, Max!! " - Brandi
"The best! He gave me notes that changed my audition for the better and will make me stand out. So talented and patient. Will 100% use again! " - Arden

Thoughts, musings, and ruminations.
The Girls On The Bus
Out Soon on HBO MAX
Melissa Benoist - Scott Foley - Carla Gugino, Griffin Dunne, Me, Mark Consuelos
I'm currently in production as a recurring cast member on the new HBO series The Girls on the Bus. Melissa Benoist helms a show chronicling four female journalists on the campaign trail. A party bus of flawed presidential candidates, friendship, love, and a scandal that could take down not just the presidency but democracy itself. I'm proud and grateful to be a part of this important show and can't wait for you to see it. Air date not yet announced
The Lost Treasure of JJ Abrams
In Festivals Now!
I wrote and produced this film earlier this year in Hawaii. I'm also in it. It's a mockumentary currently touring the festival circuit and I'm pretty darn proud of it. Trailer below!
I recently guest starred on The Equalizer (Season 2 episode 14) as Paulie Schinzel, an old friend of Harry Keshegian's (Adam Goldberg). Everyone was amazing and it just so happens that, yes, Adam Goldberg is a sweatheart and as funny in real life as you'd hope him to be. We could have riffed jokes back and forth forever. I could've at least. He woulda probably bailed on that.

Blue's Big City Adventure
A MAN, A DOG, A DREAM...

I play the liberal bashing alt-right political agitator Nathaniel Bain in Season 1, episode 10 of FBI. One of the days I worked on FBI was, to this day, the funnest day I've ever had on a set.
(Ask me about it next time you see me😉)
The Truth Is Always Changing...
I play Tate in Season one of the Amazon series Sneaky Pete. Created and Executive Produced by Bryan Crantson, the show debuted on January 13th with the second-largest premiere day streaming audience of any Amazon original program to date. It scored a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and was renewed by the studio for a second season a mere six daysafter it's release. The all-star cast is led by Giovanni Ribisi, Margo Martindale, and Bryan Cranston himself. It's currently available for streaming on Amazon.
The Final Season
I co-starred in the finale of HBO's award winning series GIRLS. I had one hilarious scene with Lena. She wrote it. But it didn't make it into the episode. So you'll just have to take my word for it! I'll tell ya about it next time I see you. It's a good day when Lena Dunham looks you in the eye after working with you and tells you you're hilarious. It makes ya feel like you did your job.
"Some things are unforgivable."
I booked and shot an amaaaazing episode of The Blacklist playing a younger version of one of the series most famous Russian KGB agents Alexander Kirk. The scenes didn't end up making the final cut but there's more Blacklist on the horizon...
"Some things are unforgivable."
Written and directed by K.M. Murphy, I'm proud to say I'm in this film that's currently on the festival circuit. Imagine the most stressful theatrical production you've ever been involved in. Then caffeinate it.
