Portrait of Max Teakle

Max Teakle

Max is 12 and has just started high school. He likes to host dinner parties, where current affairs are discussed and large volumes of wasabi are consumed. He was born in Darwin where his parents ran a music program with local Indigenous kids. He plays a vintage violin.

Max is worried about the government’s position on gay marriage and women. He believes there is no context in which women should ever be called hot because it demonstrates a lack of respect. Max reads so much that his dad sometimes hides his books.
