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 cracked open a can of Ginger Ale with NJI Project Manager Zaid Abdullah this past week and reminisced about their shared love for baseball and their unwavering ability to concentrate in the presence of any noise.
