Maximillian Kirchoff


I am a multidisciplinary creative, technologist and thinker. This is a fancy way of saying that I enjoy building cool stuff as much as I enjoy talking about it. My expertise crosses many fields and domains as does my approach to understanding. I am deeply interested in emotional intelligence and our relationship to technology — and how it influences our ethics & the future of the human experience.

I live in Austin, TX with my wife and our dog.

I am also red-green colorblind.


I am currently considering full-time and contract roles after running my own creative agency for the last 4+ years. I'd love to find the "right" fit rather than the "right now" fit. Please take a look at my resume and let me know if you think we would work well together.

Wild Feelings

I'm part of the founding team at Wild Feelings, a start-up for individuals to learn how your emotions work and why that matters. We are creating a path to emotional intelligence for future leaders. Find out more at


I launched a podcast with my creative partner, Isla Murray, called People Not Things as part of our search to find others who wanted to look at the people and relationships behind everything. You can find our podcast wherever you listen to podcasts or at


I would love to speak at your event. I have spoken on, written about and prepared content on emotional intelligence for creative leaders, philosophy & technology, human-centered design, empathy, collaboration and other topics that are great for product groups, entrepreneurs and students.
