Born into a family of carnival owners in Texas, USA, Maxwell Ivey lost his sight at age 12. Having a natural gusto for life, Max graduated college and became heavily involved in the Eagle Scouts. He also worked in the family business alongside brothers until his father succumbed to lung cancer.

Overcoming many obstacles, Max made a name for himself online and now shares his experiences on The Blind Blogger. Max’s favourite things entail teaching and helping others achieve their goals and so he began another business: personal coaching.
