Max taught a six-week Advanced Acting course to BAMtheatre's Conservatory Ensemble, comprised of twenty-eight actors. Founded on the practices of Stanislavski, while also incorporating the techniques of Meisner, Grotowski, and Laban, students studied acting in a rigorous and physical way that brings honesty and intention to every moment onstage.

Max co-starred in the short film, Walking Through directed by Kyle Niemer. Written by Kyle Niemer, Mallory Raven-Ellen Backstrom, and Neil Connelly.

Max performed at Feinstein's/54 Below in On Brand!, a night of music from composers David Reddyk and Ethan Krupp. Max performed "Look at Us" from their musical Aughts.
