About Me


To play to live; To live to play.


I’m Max – love travelling, dancing, climbing and making music. Currently in part-time hermit mode, focusing on my new job as a doctor. Freedom comes in August 2016!

Any time not spent in hospitals 'til then will be spent on weekend trips to festivals and beautiful places!


The Holstee Manifesto.


This is your life. Do what you love. And do it often.

If you don't like something, change it.

If you don’t like your job, quit.

If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.

If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.

Stop over-analysing, all emotions are beautiful.

When you eat, appreciate every last bite.

Life is simple.

Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people - we are united in our differences.

Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them.

Travel often, getting lost with help you find yourself.

Some opportunities only come once - seize them.

Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating.

Life is short. Live your dream; And share your passion.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
