Maximillian Kirchoff


I am a multidisciplinary technologist and philosopher. 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 empathy and our relationship to emerging technology; and how this influences the morality of technology & the future of the human experience.

I live in Brooklyn, NY with my fiancé and our 3 dogs.

I am also red-green colorblind.


My brilliant collaborator, Isla Murray, and I formed a creative and innovation studio. We specialize in bold ideas and emerging technology, with a strong focus on the people who use it. Read about our services and see our work at


I would love to speak at your event. I have spoken on, written about and prepared content on emerging technology for beginners, philosophy & technology, ideation practices, empathy, humanizing technology and other topics that are great for product groups, entrepreneurs and students. Please contact me for details at


I am no longer pursuing full-time roles working for other companies, but would love to chat if our studio can help. Otherwise, here is my LinkedIn.
