Our Chief Panda Officer, always near the genesis of an inspired idea (or cocktail), often recalls Marcel Proust’s wit for answering Victorian parlor game questions. Pixel has traveled far from the salons of Paris, but her interest remains piqued in which questions truly reflect a person’s character. Packing just the right amount of punch, NJI created The Pixel Questionnaire to give a glimpse into the inner workings of some of our most intriguing minds.
Pixel recently got an inside look into the world of Project Director, Beth Reiser. With her trusty to-do list always by her side, Beth has mastered the art of juggling, seamlessly managing a multitude of client projects and creative and technical minds, all while tending to the needs of her energetic 2-year-old son.
