Max is a tactical trainer and author, a professional soldier with extensive experience in British elite forces and as a paramilitary contractor. Max was enlisted and later commissioned, via the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, into the Parachute Regiment. The Parachute Regiment is an elite VHR airborne infantry unit, comparable to the U.S. 75th Ranger Regiment, accessible only via the renowned ‘Pegasus Company’ Selection course. Max served in 1 and 2 PARA. Of the three PARA battalions, 2 and 3 PARA serve in 16 Air Assault Brigade as the UK’s Rapid Response Force, with one battalion at permanent high readiness for worldwide intervention operations. Max served in Para Reg when it was utilized to provide elite airborne infantry support to UKSF, as the forefathers of the SFSG. With training and operations validating the concept, including Op Barras (Sierra Leone), 1 PARA was placed permanently in role as part of the SFSG.

Additionally, Max served on a number of combat deployments. Additional overseas assignments saw the opportunity to train, or train with, allied nations, including the U.S. Military. Roles which Max filled included rifle platoon commander, patrol leader, recruit instructor (platoon commander) at the PARA Training Depot, anti-armor platoon commander (fire support company), operations officer and command on deployments. After successful completion of UKSF selection, but non-completion of continuation due to injuries sustained, Max completed one final deployment; having reached a career point where staff duty was unavoidable, Max made the decision to resign from the service. After leaving the British Army, Max spent a further five years working operationally as a paramilitary contractor in both Iraq and Afghanistan; the latter two years based in Helmand Province working alongside the UK Military. It is this sort of operational deployment at small team level that drives Max, tied as it is to the art of small unit tactics.

Since 2013, Max has run Max Velocity Tactical (MVT), a training company conceived to offer professional combat training for responsible citizens. As the Velocity Training Center (VTC) has grown into a state of the art training venue, MVT also took on pre-deployment training for U.S. SOF. This runs the spectrum from facility utilization to tailored training packages specializing in Small Unit Tactics, utilizing support helicopter insertion, demolition and support weapons, as desired.
