crownoverMax Crownover

hanging_smallMax Crownover creates art using wood and metal.  He has loved working with wood for as long as he can remember.  Over the years he has done a variety of woodworking, including building and refinishing furniture, but his love of woodturning dates back to Wood Shop in Junior High School, where he was first introduced to it.  One of his favorite artistic challenges is taking a piece of wood from the woodpile and turning it into a bowl or wall hanging.

smallbowl_smallMax retired from the U. S. Navy after twenty two and a half years as a Surface Warfare Officer and Information Professional.  He holds a Bachelors of Science in Physical Science from Penn State University, a Masters of Science in Software Engineering Management from Central Michigan University, and a PhD in Engineering Management and Systems Engineering from Old Dominion University.

largebowl_smallHe is currently a member of the Principal Professional Staff of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.  While his formal education and career are in the technical field, he has taken numerous classes and workshops in woodturning, wood carving and metal working.

natural_smallMax loves all forms of art (music, performing, visual) and enjoys sharing his passion for the arts with his lovely and talented wife, Robin Holliday.  They live in Columbia, Maryland with their furry family of two Golden Retrievers and six kitties.
