Quinn was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and moved to Nashville in 1999. He began his career in Nashville working with youth at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Middle TN and the YMCA. In 2009 he became employed as a Metro Nashville Police Officer with the goal of becoming a School Resource Police Officer. He accomplished that goal in 2014 and is currently the School Resource Police Officer at East Nashville High School.
He has been a member of Covenant Baptist Church since 2008 and is an active ordained Deacon. He also serves as the drummer in the worship band at Covenant.
In 2015, while volunteering with the youth at Covenant Baptist, the Lord called Quinn to officially serve in the position of Youth Leader at Covenant Baptist. His wife, Ashley, a kindergarten teacher in Rutherford County, also faithfully serves alongside Quinn in the youth ministry. She is also active in many other ministries at Covenant. They currently reside in Nolensville with their dog, Mia.
Quinn's goal is to help the youth learn how to live the lives God has called them to live - and how to remain steadfast in a world where they are faced with so many difficult challenges. He uses Bible-based studies and fun activities to reinforce the Biblical principles that can help them overcome the temptations of this world. He wants them to learn how and to know how they can confidently and courageously live a life that bears witness of God's love!
