Max Kirwin

Committee Chair Manager

After graduating from SUNY Buffalo State with a B.S. in Forensic Chemistry, Max pivoted to the restaurant industry, ultimately applying his education to the world of food and beverage. In 2015, with a growing passion for food culture and how it influences people and their community, their overall wellbeing and relationships with others, he jumped from one coast to the other. The last 6 years have been spent working in the California olive oil industry, most recently overseeing a quality assurance program. He has cherished discovering the bounties that the California landscape has to offer and taking every opportunity to learn and taste along with the producers and crafters of the golden state. His free time is ideally spent at the local farmers market, checking off places on his never-ending list of restaurants, breweries and wineries to experience, and when he isn’t filling his belly, he is likely hiking or spending time with his partner, friends and two dogs, Bengal and Cali.
