Jason Quinn has committed his life to the spoken and written word. He is a writer, producer, director, and professional actor who spent more than twenty years honing his craft on and behind local, national, and international stages and screens. Formerly based in New York and Los Angeles, and currently back home in Hawaii, Quinn’s focus is on performing and writing brutal truths with grit, subtlety, and nuance.
He dropped an acclaimed hip hop album that had a song featured in Grand Theft Auto. His short film, The Trickle Down Effect, won best short film in the San Francisco Black Film Festival and the New York Underground Film Festival. In 2020, Quinn starred in the movie Waikiki, which won best film at the Hawaii Film Festival, and he’s also appeared in TV shows such as Marvel’s Inhumans, Magnum P.I., Hawaii Five-O, and NCIS: Hawai’i.
However, Quinn’s greatest professional achievement is publishing Concrete Rainbow and recording and self-narrating the audio book. It’s a must listen. The venerable playwright and journalist, Lee Cataluna, described Quinn and Concrete Rainbow:
"Quinn's work on stage and screen is familiar to audiences, and his years as an actor are reflected in his writing. His story has the cadence and color of the spoken word and is written with so much voice, the experience of reading it is almost like listening to the tale being told in a moment of unguarded honesty by the man who lived it."
~ Forward, Concrete Rainbow.
Quinn lives in Honolulu with his wife, Angelica, and son, Ziya.
