Name: Nivas Patel
Title: Senior Media Analyst
How long have you been a camper here at Net Conversion?
I’ve been here since Feb of 2022. I don’t know how many months that is – 18?
What’s your favorite NC Memory?
My favorite NC Memory… Okay, this one is a bit weird. It was when the execs were out of the office during prank week, and David was in charge of AA (our weekly company meeting). During the camper recognitions that David was reading out loud, someone wrote a long message with my name in it, with some of the funniest things. I thought it was from David to me, and he thought it was from me to him. Everyone was confused, and in the end, it was RJ being RJ pranking both of us. Everyone in the meeting was cracking up.
What’s your go-to snack in the office?
(no hesitation) Hot Cheetos
If you could be a professional athlete, what sport would you excel in (even if you’ve never tried it)?
I feel like I would excel in a racket sport, probably pickleball. I’ve started playing it recently.
If it had to be a sport that I’d want to play but don’t currently – basketball.
Would you rather drive an ice cream truck to work (with the music playing the whole time) or come dressed as a clown every day?
Ice cream truck – I can’t imagine having to be on a call with partners dressed as a clown.
What’s your secret talent that nobody knows about?
I can do relatively complex math when I’m drunk. Nothing too crazy, but I can multiply 3-digit math easily.
What “old person” things do you do?
I do a lot of old-people things, actually. A lot of my friends say I’m an old person at heart. I like going on casual walks to random places and prefer staying in versus going out.
If you could pick one person in the office to take to a deserted island, who would it be and why?
Zac Douglas – We are obsessed with Survivor. We’ve talked about applying together – Zac actually applies every year. I think we know each other well enough not to turn on each other when things get tough.
What’s your favorite useless fact?
Zebras are black with white stripes.
Morning person or night owl?
I am a morning person for sure – I get up at 5:30 a.m. most days. I get too sleepy to stay up late.
Who do you think is the Office Diva?
I’m gonna go back to Zac again. He’s always causing a ruckus – I feel like everyone thinks it would be RJ as the Pit Boss, but Zac is taking over.
If you were a vegetable, which one would you be, and why?
Tomato, because it’s one of those vegetables that everyone thinks is a fruit.
(Tomato is a fruit)
Okay, got it backward – Maybe I’m not meant to be a vegetable, I’m meant to be a fruit.
What’s your favorite season?
Fall – I like it because I hate heat. Not the holiday stuff, just no heat.
What’s the most embarrassing fashion trend you’ve ever followed from middle school?
I had a sling crossbody backpack – I was one of those guys.
Anything else you want readers to know?
I’m gonna go with an MJ quote – I’m a huge Bulls fan, and he’s the goat.
“I’ve never lost a game, I just ran out of time.”
I believe that we can do anything if we’re willing to work hard and put the time in.
