A senior director of an IT solution delivery team, Graeme Queen earned his MBA from Portland State University, where he was a member of Beta Gamma Sigma. In his free time, Graeme Queen enjoys watching drama series and counts Breaking Bad as one of his favorites.

Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in the popular series, won three Primetime Emmy Awards for his portrayal of the character. Paul won the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series award in 2010, 2012, and 2014. It was a breakthrough role for the actor who had previously never had a lead role in a film or television series.

In fact, one of Paul’s minor roles earlier in his career played a part in him landing the role of Pinkman for Breaking Bad. In 2001, he played a guest role as David “Sky Commander Winky” Winkle on an episode of The X-Files, a show for which Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan wrote episodes. Gilligan recognized Paul when he came to audition for Breaking Bad, especially because the “Sky Commander Winky” moniker was the nickname of Gilligan’s real-life college friend.
