Max Savage quit smoking cigarettes in 2016. 3 months into vaping, he started making his own e-liquid. When he first started vaping, he was excited about how many flavors and profiles were on the market and thought it was crazy how someone could replicate those flavors in an e-liquid. So after a few months, Max decided to look into how these profiles were produced and found out how to mix his own creations with the help of forums and online videos. "I thought you needed a lab. I thought you needed to buy certain compounds and have some kind of chemistry degree to know how to create these flavors. I didn't think you could just buy a bottle that said 'ice cream' on it."

Max credits his ability to craft recipes from his time spent in the culinary industry working as a chef. He loved the creative aspect of crafting interesting new flavors in his dishes. His background in the kitchen carried over to mixing, helping him understand the technical and creative process of using different flavors, their notes and behaviors in a mix, to achieve a profile. Max's ability to find certain notes in concentrates and repurpose them in a recipe is truly innovative as shown in recipes like Gatsby, Golden Boy, and All Day.

His deep involvement in the mixing community gave him a strong base to build his career. From the development of tobacco recipes that inspired hundreds of other mixes and techniques, to his commercial work all around the world, he has become one of the most respected mixers and a fundamental pillar to Developed.
