BIOGRAPHY
Max Edward Cohen
Hello, welcome to my website!
My name is Max and I was born & raised in Santa Rosa, California.
In 2014, I had the fortunate experience to interview Steve Wozniak which inspired me to develop my first iOS App: Circuit Flash. A few years later, I had a roster of apps under my belt.
While pursuing my bachelor's degree in computing and business, I found my passion designing front-end structures. During my experiences, I have overseen the development for company brands, marketing campaigns, and consumer-facing products.

Theta Tau
The first semester in Theta Tau is spent building New Member's interview tactics, resumés, online portfolio, and altogether professional atmosphere. When I took over as the New Member Educator, there was no solidified guideline for teaching the New Members. I took it upon myself to develop an overarching lesson plan for future educators.
