2018 Staff Spotlight - Max Goldberg

Hey everyone! My name is Max Goldberg, and I'm super excited for camp this summer. I just started the third trimester of my freshman year at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. That's just south of Minneapolis.

At school, I sing in the chamber choir and play club volleyball with Holden Greenberg, an NSC alum, and of course many others. I'm on track to major in Computer Science with a minor in Music Performance. I've also been playing a lot of guitar and piano in my free time!

This will be my 11th summer at North Star.
