Max Cea is a writer—mostly. He’s written cultural criticism, reported features, essays, and has conducted Q&A’s for outlets that include BillboardGrantland, GQMic, The New York Times, Nymag.comSalon, and SPIN. But he has also worked in film (as a PA on the late Jonathan Demme’s “The Power of Rock” and on a short film of his own) and co-runs and edits an arts/adventure/absurdity magazine (The Pink Monkey), which he co-created. Basically, he can do it all. Just not elementary-level science or cartography or most things of actual consequence. For what it's worth, he has a B.A. in American Studies from the College of William Mary.
