A BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH MAGGI:
Who is one of your favorite artists?
Moving to New York City and my role in scheduling has introduced me to a lot of new art and artists. I am constantly blown away by the incredible work people do. One of my favorite artists right now is Emily Mae Smith. She lives and works in Brooklyn. There is something about her surrealist, pop art style that I can’t get enough of. Some of my favorite pieces include the broomsticks from Disney’s Fantasia.
What would you be doing if you did not work at NL?
In another universe (that still had David Attenborough), I would do camera on Planet Earth. The reality of this would mean grueling months of time in remote locations looking for creatures you may never find. But, capturing those mind blowing animal interactions and sharing it with the world would make the struggle and waiting worth it.
What is your favorite fictional character and why?
My favorite fictional character is FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks. His distinct sense of humor, eccentric mannerisms, as well as his deep love of diner coffee and pie hits home for me. In the world of fictional FBI Agents, a close second would be Agent Scully from The X-files.
