            James Quinn


            James Robert Quinn was born July 1st 1964 in San Jose, California. As a young boy in school he was offered the chance to take a music class or take a math test; he played trumpet throughout his academic and well into his military career. He graduated Gunderson High School in 1983, where he discovered an interest in the guitar and studied that instrument with several teachers until joining the United States Air Force in 1985. His introduction to professional entertainment, and the highlight of his Air Force enlistment, were two tours of duty with the prestigious entertainment unit "Tops In Blue", on which he first played trumpet, and, later, guitar. He attended college in Los Angeles after leaving the military and graduated with a music degree from the Grove School of Music in 1989. After a classmate dropped out of a television pilot, "Esta Noche", the job of Musical Director was offered to James. It was during this period that his interest in acting in film and television formed. He toiled as an extra in several uneventful productions and took acting classes on weekends, including studying with Jack Mongan, Associate Producer of "Remington Steele". In 1991 he married his girlfriend, Alyson, a singer he met while on tour in the Air Force. They are still married and, as far as Jim is concerned, they always will be because, "she makes me laugh." A few years later they moved to Orange County, California. He gave guitar lessons and transcribed music to make ends meet. Then, he began performing music with his wife. They moved to Germany several years later and Jim heard of an English language theatre, Keller Theatre, which needed male actors. He auditioned, fully expecting to be cast in a small supporting role. He was surprised to find that he had been cast as the male lead role in their following production of "Communicating Doors". He has since been cast as the male lead in many stage productions and garnered several awards including Best Ensemble in 2001 for "Time Flies", Best Supporting Actor in 2002 for "Boise, Idaho", and Best Actor in 2004 for "Animal Decisions". He now works almost exclusively in film and television.
