There is no stopping Max Romey — not when he’s painting, not when he’s filming, not when he’s running and not when he’s doing all three at the exact same time. Instead of tackling learning challenges in the classroom, Max finds his way in the world by sharing what he sees with others. What he does is better than brilliant and it’s better than art: it’s inspiration. In this episode Max shares with us his why, his world and insights into how you can find for yourself the same life fire he feels.
