Maxwell will speak about his acting career and travels as the host of “Booze Traveler.” During the first season, he went to Armenia, Austria, Belize, Iceland, Japan, Lithuania, Mongolia and Nepal, Netherlands, Peru, Spain and Turkey to explore different cultures through the various drinks consumed by the locals. In his travels, Maxwell makes friends, discusses religion and politics, and learns about the history and culture of the places he visits.

He eventually moved to Los Angeles to begin his acting career and has appeared in several television shows including “Lost,” “24,” “Franklin and Bash,” and “Ugly Betty.” Maxwell also enjoys theatre and has had roles in “Lovers and Other Strangers,” “Meeting of Minds” and “Wild Solome” (with Al Pacino), to name a few.
