Max Holzheu is a learning afficionado, crossfitter, reader and Ruby-On-Rails developer. He's obsessed with tracking data. After finishing high school, Max flew to San Francisco for a month, where he was "infected" with the startup culture. This evolved into the desire to build his own "life path". When he came back to Guatemala, he taught himself to code in 5 months. He has since built about 5 websites, including lasquinielas.co and qdesigns.co. With all this new experience, he took a leap of faith when he decided not to pursue a college degree at all. Instead, he joined a web development team (Junto Studio), which provided him with the best environment and support to keep building his own path; one stone at a time.
