Maximillian Kaizen is a culturesmith, researcher, educator, activist and big fan of tinkering.
Max is Public Lead for Creative Commons in South Africa, a global organisation that develops and supports legal and technical infrastructure between the Internet and the realworld. She champions the protection of digital rights like universal access, open-education, open-science, and specifically, intellectual property on the Internet where government, business and civil society meet.

As Chief Muse and Maker at the Ogilvy Digital Marketing Academy , she gets a chance to experiment with social learning online, realworld, by-whatever-means, for the world’s largest ad agency. She develops open-education resources and courseware to share the learning beyond the agency’s invitation-only programs.
As co-director of Business Acumen for Artists at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business, she is gladly part of one of the most innovative business school programs that really does change lives and fortunes.
