Max Osswald

MAX OSSWALD wakes up thinking about creating content, in fact, there isn’t much else that he’d rather be doing than producing content. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Max enjoys the Cincinnati Reds, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cincinnati Bearcats and randomly shouting the phrase “Who Dey!” to strangers. A tennis aficionado, 2nd generation Anglophile and polymath, he appreciates a good Pimm’s Cup, refined shapes and boasts an encyclopedic knowledge of hardcore 90s hip hop.

Max has 10+ years of experience developing content for networks and brands, from Food Network and Turner to Clorox and Best Buy. He is currently an Executive Producer and Managing Member of National Picture Show Entertainment, responsible for the development and production of original and turnkey production across commercial, digital and on-air platforms.

Prior to his life in entertainment he was a tennis coach, working with National and Grand Slam Champions, Entertainment Moguls and Academy Award winning celebrities. He loves his wife and has a wicked forehand. If you're looking to snap out of a bad mood, call him, he's got you covered.
