Hi my name is Maya Pruitt, and here are 5 fun facts you should know about me: 

  1. I was born and raised in New York City.

  2. I graduated from Vassar College with a BA in Cognitive Science and minors in Studio Art and Spanish.

  3. I am a diver, but not the deep sea kind, the cool flippy things off a springboard kind.

  4. In college, I sang in a Disney a cappella group called Beauty and the Beats.

  5. I have a cat named Smoke.

No matter how many people think that art and science fall on opposite ends of the academic spectrum, to me, these disciplines go hand and hand. My goal is to combine these fields to create something magical. Whether it's UX design, virtual reality, or creating a robotic art critic, like I did for a project in college, art and science are starting to intersect. By understanding the way people think and creatively express themselves, we can push our innovation of technologies.
