A little bit about Max

Max officially started his career turning junk into treasure as a child crafting washing up liquid bottles into spaceships! 

After a couple of years Max decided that he really wanted to design, engineer and manufacture his own creations and felt inspired by beautiful items of waste so in 2002 he established a business with the aim to design and create a range of upcycled furniture and accessories from objects destined for landfill. Max was keen to show that eco-friendly products do not have to be made from mud and hemp, they can be contemporary, stylish and desirable.

Max is also now a TV presenter and his recent credits include a series on ITV1 called ‘£10k Holiday Home’ which he co-presented with Julia Bradbury. Throughout the series Max was seen creating the most amazing transportable holiday home on a budget of £5k. He is currently filming a new series for Really and HGTV which will be shown in early 2020.

His other credits include ‘Find It Fix It Flog It’ on Channel 4, ‘Shed of the Year’ on 4, ‘How To Live Mortgage Free’ on C4, two series of ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’ and ‘Fill Your House For Free’. Max has also fronted a special for ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’ which followed his journey selling his house and building a floating home from a 40ft shipping container. The show was the highest rating episode across the series. And in 2016 Max fronted a series on Nat Geo called ‘Machine Impossible’.
