After graduating in his studies of journalism Max decided it was time to leave the comforts of The Netherlands and go out into the wide world and gain valuable experience as a conflict reporter. He started out doing a few trips reporting in Syria and Iraq and later on closer to home; in Ukraine. Max has no girlfriend and doesn't seem to really need one as he is good on his own and is good looking enough to find a stranger at a bar and get the necessary needs fulfilled when it is desired. His last and still current job is reporting in Chernarus as he never managed to exit the country before its ultimate lock-down he tries to keep the idea in his head to "keep reporting" and writing what happens around him down so he can, one day, publish his findings for the world to see. Max is a loner and finds it easier to do things his way but won't hesitate to help someone in need either. He might associate with a group for a while but can as easily pack up his things and leave without saying a word. He is more likely to leave some supplies behind rather than steal some upon leaving his company. He doesn't really talk about family or his past much from before his studies in journalism as he's had a rough upbringing which he'd rather not be reminded of.
