Hi, my name is Max Deutsch

I create things with technology

I'm a product manager at Intuit with a math degree from Brown

Here's my story...

In 6th grade, I sold essay-writing software to my friends in the cafeteria. I thought it used artificial intelligence, but it was basically a MadLib on a CD-ROM. Sophomore year of highschool, I built a visual effects studio and my work ended up screening at the Cannes Film Festival. Senior year, I founded a biotech company (with the help of some really smart people at the NYU Langone Medical Center) to build technology that enables deaf patients to enjoy music. A lot of what we did is now clinical procedure. Sophomore year of college, I started a payments company...just so I could eat more cheaply around Brown's campus. Senior year, I launched Rhombus, a Startup-As-A-Service company, with a team of designers and engineers across eight different timezones. In 2015, I graduated, moved to SF, and started working at Intuit as a product manager, building cool stuff for QuickBooks. In the meantime, I've also built portraits out of Legos, ridden thousands of miles on my bike, learned to speak Hebrew, co-founded a nationwide business publication, solved a Rubik's Cube blindfolded, started an education non-profit, published crossword puzzles in major publications, and played lots of blues guitar and jazz percussion. I also built Somebody.io, so anyone can easily build a site like this one.
