Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Max (But Were Afraid to Ask)

My name is Max Nussenbaum, and this is my web site.

At various points in my life I’ve been a graphic designer, web developer, fiction writer, freestyle rapper, startup founder, game show contestant, musical lyricist, and probably a few other things.

Most recently, I was cofounder and CEO of Castle, a property management startup, which we wound down at the beginning of 2018. These days I support myself by doing freelance brand and design work and speculating on cryptocurrencies. (Just kidding about the cryptocurrencies—that hobby has only lost me money.)

Before Castle, I was a 2012 Fellow in Venture for America’s inaugural class and spent two years as a design and business guy at Are You a Human. I also bought and restored a formerly-abandoned mansion in Detroit with some friends who later became my Castle cofounders.

I’m originally from Newton, Massachusetts, and did my time at the infamous Newton North High School before graduating from what Gawker called America’s most annoying liberal arts school in 2012.

This web site has been around in some form or another since 2001, when I bought a book about HTML and read it instead of paying attention to my fifth-grade teacher.

You can find me on Twitter (definitely), Instagram (a little personal, but sure), Facebook (if you must), and LinkedIn (just vomited). You can also find my Twitter dream journal at @maxspsyche.
