Mike's upbringing in Southeast Asia, Latin American and the Middle East helped ignite his love for all types of music. He followed in his father's footsteps and obtained a Civil Engineering Degree and became a US licensed Civil Engineer so that he could continue to travel and work around the world. He worked in the US and Korea before landing in Grenada 28 years ago. After falling in love with the people and island of Grenada, Mike and his wife Julie started QuinnCo in 1994 with a mission to help develop the Grenadian construction sector to be able to compete at international levels.
Mike has played guitar and sang in various groups and bands from an early age ranging from rock, folk, country and jazz. He is currently in the tropical jazz fusion band Quiet Fire. Mike hopes to add his support to the steering committee for a successful Music Festival that will be sustainable and so visitors and locals can enjoy top international musicians and showcase the best Grenadian talent during the same event.
