I'm Quinn -

  • I am subscribed to over 200 platforms and read almost every single article I receive.
  • When I was 12, I wanted new stickers for my snowboard. So I made a "scavenger hunt" with a list of items, crossed every one off except "One dollar bill" and knocked on my neighbor's doors. I received $13 and bought new stickers. Young con-artist? I prefer genius problem solver.
  • I grew up on a farm and wanted to be a professional bull rider. Now, nobody believes me because I'm so "metro".
  • My mind is consumed by what fashion and music trends are next-up.
  • I've started and grown three different companies - all which taught me how to solve problems differently.
  • I send my professors new strategy articles  at 2 A.M. regularly.

Why Advertising?

You're probably wondering how I ended up here. Well, rewind the tapes.

After graduating High School and then moving to Peru for two years, I thought my future would be filled with startups and ventures. In regards to that part, I wasn't wrong. After moving back to the U.S., I began working at a bank - thinking that I had found my steady future. I stepped away from the university due to me climbing the glamorous corporate ladder to a management position in less than a year. Things were going well you might say for a 21 year old kid. I had a good job and my first side hustle (a bespoke suit company) was treating me rather nicely.

A year and a half passed by and that bright future of banking just seemed sluggish and boring. I wanted to fill a creative vice that in no way would ever be filled within banking. I loved finding new ways to sell, new ways to coach; I enjoyed experimenting - but there was no creative outlet permitted to do so. "Go back to school" popped into my head one stale morning at work... so I pulled up the list of majors and planned to go A - Z. "Accounting... naaaah! Next!" The following major was Advertising. I read through the classes offered, looked into the AdLab, and instantly knew it was what I was missing. I re-enrolled in school and I was ready to to dive into the major.

Finally, we are here. I've found a way to combine my creative desires with my innovative thinking through being a strategist. That same passion to experiment, think ahead, and challenge thoughts is the ice in my veins which makes me a curious planner.
