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.

Max’s first book ‘Upcycling’ was published in 2016 and has been published internationally in 6 languages.

Max is heavily involved in helping the homeless, building schools in Kenya and thinks he is a real life Robin hood!
