When Max was born doctors were curious and gathered around to see the baby that never cried. Which wasn’t curious for Max who simply didn’t want to break the silence with bad sound.
In school, it was easy for him to cheat as he was able to hear even the silent thoughts of his class best left-brainers. And some teachers even assumed Max’ brain to feature an oversized area reserved for acoustics.
Well, as you see, Max has eventually become a composer and founded Raven & Finch. He is now creating sound experiences for brands for a living (also because he couldn’t do anything else – he’s a right-brainer after all).
