High school dropout, corporate world burnout, and just happy to be alive and well. My two primary objectives in life are sustainable happiness, and meaningful impact. In pursuit of the former, I am always on the lookout for ways to maximize my short and long term happiness - and in pursuit of the latter, I am always looking for ways to make a positive impact on the lives of others, whether it's holding the door for someone, or assisting someone out of a complicated jam. I believe that we as humans have a duty to assist each other, and that doing the right thing will make the right thing come back to you. We're all in this game of life together... let's play as a team! 

Hello! Welcome to! I created this webpage as somewhat of a public profile of myself, to better assist inquiring minds in answering the seemingly unanswerable questions of "who is Maxwell?", and "what does Maxwell do?". My varied and unconventional endeavours that have formed my life to date make this no easy task. But perhaps we can give it an honest try. Let's start with some basics...

Locale: Toronto, Ontario, Canada (hometown). Also lived in Manchester (England) and Alcamo (Sicily/Italy).

Education: High school dropout at 16 (and proud of it!), OREA Real Estate Salesperson pre-licensing (youngest ever to complete the program at age 17, 2010), Fashion Business Industry Diploma (George Brown College, class of 2014), International Fashion Practice BA (Manchester Metropolitan University, class of 2015, 2:1/upper second class honours).

Lines of work: Retail sales, restaurants (server, manager, sous chef), telemarketing, real estate sales, retail purchasing, many stints of entrepreneurship, and many stints of casual labour ranging from assembling furniture to construction work.

Hobbies: Reading, cooking, mixology, travel, browsing the internet with too many tabs open.

That's me in a nutshell. Whether you've landed on this webpage because you saw something I wrote and Googled me, you met me in person and I told you about this page, or you stumbled upon this page for no explainable reason, hopefully this will give you a reasonably good idea of who I am. Also, you may be wondering why this website is in basic HTML. I have always felt basic HTML to be the most reliable form of web publishing. It does not contain complicated CSS or JavaScript, which can cause pages to crash or load incompletely if poorly coded - also with no guarantee of mobile compatibility. Additionally, I feel like its basic appearance best reflects my personality. No bells and whistles - no fancy-dancy filters - just keeping it simple.

I will conclude my introduction at that. Please see below for my professional portfolio, and some musings of mine. If you would like to get in touch, please feel free to do so through any of the communication methods as outlined below...
