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.

Soaring through professional challenges with style and grace, Project Manager Janey Blackwell-Orr has a knack for transforming chaos into choreographed symphonies of success. A cat lover and Swiftie, Janey spills her secrets in the latest Pixel exclusive.
