“I am not just a lawyer. I am an educator seeking to teach, to protect, and hopefully, to inspire those around me to follow their own dreams.”
Quinton (“Q”) began his 20+ years of experience in the entertainment field in musical theatre, doing community and summer stock shows in upstate New York. Quinton grew up in Elmira, NY where he was a DJ and talk show host on both AM and FM radio. After High School he followed the footlights to New York City where he earned his B.A. in Media Studies from Fordham University, Lincoln Center while taking breaks to tour.
For over 300 weekly episodes he wrote and hosted the syndicated FM program and podcast, “Q’s House,” a show concerning the independent music business where both musicians and their fans could come together to laugh, learn, and drink. Ariel Cyber PR dubbed him a new media pioneer, and his expertise has been regularly shared by both Connections Magazine and through OrlandoBands.com.
He was one of MajorLabelScout.com’s top A&R scouts and is a frequent showcase judge for festivals and contests around the Southeast.
His decision to tie all his entertainment experience together led him to earn his J.D. from Barry University’s Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law in Orlando, FL.
Quinton’s downtime is spent at local concerts and other area performances.
“It’s not just work for me – It’s what I love”
He’s wanting to get back into producing audio content, and since he stopped the landscape has changed dramatically. We sit down to talk about what it was like in the good old days, the importance of defining your voice, how to think about creative endeavors, and a lot more that goes into making a podcast.
I pull the curtain back on my creative process and how I go about actually making the show work. What microphone I use, what programs, how I get the show from my computer and into whatever device you’re listening on now.
There’s a lot in this show, that’s why it’s nearly 2 hours long. If you’re interested in the creative arts, and producing something awesome, you’ll want to listen to the whole thing.
And now, onto the show!
