Origins

Bulkington aka Max Lemanowicz was born in Cleveland, Ohio, raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, spent many a youthful summer in morgantown, West Virginia and currently lives in San Diego, California.

He'd rather count the ceiling tiles than take a nap in preschool, which the administrators viewed as mental dysfunction.

When the music aficionados of his elementary school came looking for band talent, he failed his recorder audition. 

whether from love or frustration, he enlisted his mother and she used her magic to get him into the band and with his first instrument: the clarinet. It lasted barely 6 months around the age of 8. video games, listening to music (playing the family dj and mixtape maker) and obsession with films (especially ones of interest that were repetitively watched, later influencing his passion for musicianship) but then came middles school and drama class. He did drama all through middle school and high school except the last year to focus on football. Until moving to san francisco to seemingly become a fiction writer...

 "My artistic birth occurred near the end of my graduate creative writing studies in San Francisco. I emerged from my training as a novelist wanting more than anything to be a Musician & Polymath. As an ode to my newfound curiosity, I selected Bulkington, a rarely-mentioned micro-character in herman melville's novel Moby Dick, as my Artistic & Intellectual masque. although he's mentioned only twice--and briefly--his courageous willingness to trek unabatedly into the unknown deserves my enduring admiration." -Bulkington
