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.
I write Candy for Breakfast, an email newsletter about funny feelings, niche intellectual interests, and how to be alive, delivered every other Sunday. By day I work at On Deck, where I help people start and grow companies.
Before that, I was cofounder and CEO of Castle, a property management startup, which was hot shit for a quick second in 2017 before imploding spectacularly.
In a past life, I was a 2012 Fellow in Venture for America’s inaugural class, where I bought and restored a formerly-abandoned mansion in Detroit with some friends who later became my Castle cofounders.
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.
