Max Friend Former Staff

Max Friend is a senior staff member on the Bark this year. He is a healthily impulsive and incredibly passionate person, who from time to time needs to take himself less seriously. He is rarely as happy as when he steps onto a Lacrosse field, lunges across a finish line, or picks up a fresh issue of the Bark on publication day. He firmly believes that every member of the Evolving Media Journalism class at Redwood is illiterate, and will deny any requests for evidence to prove this claim. While not journalism-ing, he is a peer supporter, the realist of his friend group, as well as the president and head chief for the Redwood High Meat Society. He loves to kick back, but knows that the best days are often those which he is so exhausted that he falls asleep before his head hits the pillow. If there is anything going on in your life, our community, or around the world that the Bark needs to know about, do not hesitate to email Max at to let him know about it!
