My name’s Max McCoy. I’m a 25 year old freelance creative from Los Angeles, CA. I felt let down by the traditional schooling system and how it prepared me for the life I dreamed of living. Ever since, I have been on a mission to learn from people, books, and experiences that can help me fulfill what I believe to be my highest calling.
I’m humbled to be sharing these conversations and perspectives along the way, while hopefully growing alongside you.

Awesome Info!!

I’m not a big fan of podcasts generally, I would typically rather just listen to music. However, this podcast is my one exception to the rule. Max always brings on super interesting people and it’s like he’s reading my mind with the questions he asks. I’ve learned so much from listening to Looking Up, highly recommend!
