Hey I'm Max!
Colorful designs and creative animations get my attention, but innovative ideas truly seize it.
Being involved in the design process of preparing the hypothesis and goals of a test to creating designs and putting different sorts of prototypes together is something I'm passionate about. I've been described as a person who is a great team player and who likes to have things organized. Besides this, I believe humor is very important because it can create a feeling of togetherness.

UX Design Intern
Sep 2019 - Feb 2020
I'm working as a UX Design Intern at King with the mobile game Candy Crush Soda. Here I do everything from sketching out a flow for a specific feature to creating a low-fi prototype and preparing the test materials needed. I enjoy working in an environment with quick iterations and together with highly skilled colleagues.
Being chosen after a tough hiring process is something I'm grateful for every day. Working at King really is a unique opportunity for me to both learn and further develop my skills.

Co-founder of Anyhap AB
Our company was part of the 2016 Spring Batch at THINK Accelerate Program that lasted for 12-weeks. During that time I designed and developed but also pitched the app we had built. This was an experience that I learned a lot about how to handle a business and working under pressure but I also learned a lot from the other companies.
THINK Accelerate Program
Au Pair in USA
2014 - 2015
Took care of three fantastic children and improved my English while I also traveled most of the USA. It was important for me to find a family that were looking from someone to share their home with rather than having an employee. I really got that from my host-family and couldn't be happier about my choice. I have visited them a couple of times since then and seeing them is so much fun and it really brings back memories.
