Deak and Quincy

Quincy.

Quincy, Quincy, and Quincy.

There aren’t word to describe Quincy.

He’s a fabulous actor, personal trainer, and friend. 

And that beard of his is something . .  to die for. At the very least, something to swoon for.

During the end of my extended trip to Atlanta I decided to make a quick stop in Charleston, SC. The home of Quincy. We met about six months earlier in Atlanta, at one of Matt Clanton’s “Tactical Training” courses for actors, and I reveled in getting to meet up with him again. He brought along one of his friend, Dean Jay, and I took a few photos of them as we prepared to do an interview on the Charleston docks.

The two for hem had an amazing camaraderie and I had no trouble getting great candid moments with them. This particular day was set aside for Deak to be the focus . .  but Quincy is an immovable force that meets a planet and shoves the planet out of the way. I had a great chat with Deak and was able to bring Quincy into the conversation to italicize some of the points Deak was making.

When I finally got around to the interview . . . I was not disappointed. I love interviewing artists.

Click below to hear Deak talk about his time as an actor, his own podcast, and what he's looking forward to doing as an artist.

At the end of the interview I bring Quincy in to talk about what he's hoping Deak can accomplish in the future.

Thanks for reading!!
