Max Schmeiser is head of data science at Twitter where he and a team perform analyses and run experiments to better understand the impact of product launches on the public conversations happening on Twitter.
Back in October I photographed Max for Degrees Magazine - an alumni magazine for the University of Regina based in Saskatchewan, Canada.
Another past graduate of University of Regina was famous architect, Minoru Yamasaki, who designed the World Trade Center and the arches you see at Pacific Science Center.
The arches made a great tie-in to the University and Max’s new life here in Seattle, and Degrees magazine ended up using this portrait as their cover for the winter issue, which I couldn’t be happier about!
Max is a really nice guy and we had a lot of fun talking to him about current events and Twitter. Just an FYI, though I asked nicely, Max said he doesn’t have the power to ban Trump from Twitter for violating their rules, but he did say they are working hard everyday to fight disinformation from being spread. Check out the digital version of the magazine here.
