Maximus was born in Long Beach, CA and has been volunteering since the age of 4 when he began helping his mom pickup and deliver food for a local food bank. After attending Love in the Mirror’s 1st G.I.V.E. Youth Empowerment Workshop, he became inspired and decided he wanted to help out more. Out of his love for the ocean, he founded Ocean Maximus to help address the issue of trash in the ocean. Along with speaking to students at local schools about how trash ends up in the ocean, he adopted a local beach. Since 2014, he has organized 10 beach clean-ups in his hometown of Long Beach, CA. Volunteers of all ages join Maximus to help pick up trash at the beach. On average, there are 15-20 volunteers at each event who help pick up trash. When Maximus is not organizing beach clean-ups, he works with Love in the Mirror doing research, donation sorting, delivery and event planning. He also sits on their Youth Advisory Board. Maximus has volunteered over 800 hours since the age of 4. In his spare time, he loves listening to music, cooking, acting, coding and everything space related.
More 2018 Beach Clean-up dates to be announced soon.
