Campus Cutie: Brett Jentleson

Name: Brett Jentleson

Hometown: Wayne, Pennsylvania (Philadelphia)

Major: Masters of Accounting Program, Finance Major 

What are you involved in on campus?

I probably should be involved in more groups, but academics takes up most of my time. I am a member of Beta Alpha Psi accounting fraternity. Sounds bland, but lots of connections and networking to be done.

What is your dream job?

We shall see how auditing goes after my internship this spring, but im hoping that my accounting experience for Media and Entertainment companies will open up new doors and ideas of how i can incorporate my business background into that industry. Ideally i would love to create an app and make billions overnight, but that's everyones dream these days, am I right?

What will you miss most about Tulane during busy season?

Mardi Gras, triple shot happy hour drinks at the boot Wednesday and Friday, and of course my friends are definitely at the top of the list, but I think most of all I will miss just being a student and not having to wake up everyday and think "time to be a real person".

What are three things you could not live without?

1. Iphone 6plus (and yes, it has to be the plus)

2. My 3 phone calls a day with my dad. Shoutout Arnie (only person who ceases to never get bored of me and my insignificant daily troubles)

3. Turkey. It can be in a salad, on a sandwich, in burger form, cooked whole and is the only food in the world I never get sick of it. 

What is your guilty pleasure?

Wine. They say a glass a day is good for the heart, but I say a little bit more can never hurt either. When i die, bury me with a dry cabernet please.

What would you say your spirit animal is?

I think my dog might be my spirit animal. We are the same person.

If you could...

...have a TV show about your life what would it be called?

My life being a TV show is a real possibility, who knows what kind of quirky fame L.A is bringing my way. I can't reveal my reality TV show name. Just have to keep my fans anxiously waiting.

...have one superpower?

Flying. Some people want to be invisible, but I have too much fun making a scene where I go. Some people want super strength but that just seems useless. If I could fly I would never have to  sit next to crying babies on a commercial flight when I go back and forth from L.A to NY

...go back in time, when would you go? 

Easy, rewind about one year and plop me back into my life abroad. Not sure that anything will ever compare to my life in Madrid. 

...if you had to have one song stuck in your head for a year what would it be?

The thought of this gives me too much anxiety, I have enough song ADHD as is!

Favorite Food: Turkey Burger (barbeque sauce and avocado on top)

Favorite TV Shows: White Collar, Weeds, Shameless, House of Cards, Lost, The Good Wife, Suits

Artist/Musical Group: Someone's Spotify playlist that seems legit

Things about Tulane: Audobon Park, excuses to drink, the fact that it is still 80 degrees in October, and or course the wonderful people I have met, you all know who you are. I've got the most amazing friends/sidekicks in the world.
