Max Smith has been working with film ever since he realized that it's very difficult to do a close-up in a theater. He is currently a training development manager at lynda.com, helping to create the titles you see in the Online Training Library™. Prior to working at lynda.com, Max was a learning systems specialist at St. Mary's College of Maryland. He had a fancy title that basically meant he taught teachers how to teach using technology.
Max also likes competing in 48-hour film festivals. He finds that the lack of sleep helps his artistic vision become a little more...focused.
