Regional Senior Assessment Officer for IMPACT Initiatives
After his time leading for RLT, Max went on to earn a Masters of Urban & Regional Planning and a Masters of Public Health focusing on Environmental and Occupational Health from the University of Colorado at Denver. These days, he is working to shape practices and influence policies in humanitarian and development settings in order to positively impact the lives of people and their communities by designing and implementing big data assessments of food access, flood vulnerability, housing conditions, and conflict displacement. This humanitarian work has taken him throughout South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, and Gaza.
RLT is with me as I to tend to my inner life as well. In my time as a participant and leader with RLT, I learned to infuse my days with moments of reflection and self-care, to cultivate relationships with clear communication and trust, and to listen to my instincts. These elements keep me safe and fulfilled in a land of war and famine just as much as they have throughout my life.
