As the dot-com boom crashed, Max joined Ocean Drive Magazine, where she promoted the over-sized lifestyle glossy through marketing and product licensing. From London, Palm Beach and Miami, Max moved to Dallas with her husband Ben in 2003 and collaborated her passion for the Internet, marketing and fashion and created the concept for PinkMemo.com.
