I’m Emmanuel Eytan, a recent graduate of Carnegie Mellon University‘s Entertainment Technology Center, where I was the recipient of the 2013 Randy Pausch award. That award goes to the graduate who best epitomizes interdisciplinary leadership through artistic, technical and interpersonal initiative, growth and excellence.
Some people I like, or in some cases admire, include: Denis Diderot, Michel de Montaigne, Jean Racine, Jean Giraudoux, Jacques Prévert, Chuck Lorre, David E. Kelley, Aaron Sorkin, Joss Whedon, Marcel Proust, Cole Tucker, Bobby Blake, Linus Torvalds, Bill Watterson, Randall Munroe, Federico Fellini, Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer James Portnow, Amélie Nothomb, Dorothy Parker, Agatha Christie, Pink Martini, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Dave Barry, Woody Allen.
I am from Paris, France, but I’ve lived in New York, San Francisco, London, Pittsburgh and now, following in the footsteps of Chuck Bartowski, Burbank. Even though I’m French, I consider wine to be what Port, Vermouth, and some types vinegar are made of, as well as a major ingredient in bœuf bourguignon. I am much more partial to good Manhattan (or Rob Roy), a Negroni or even a nice glass of icy Akvavit.
