Atlantis Books portrait

Raised in a back-woods Californian Junkyard, Quinn grew up repairing forklifts and operating arc-welders and sandblasters. He can gauge metal alloys by taste and oil viscosity by smell. “I liked robots,” says Quinn, describing how the world of logic consumed him and he fell into maths and computers. 10^100 keystrokes later, after many years of data-input and working as a consultant, Quinn is struck by the reality of the Human Experience.

“What the fuck am I doing?” inquires the young businessman, in a panic to join the circus in France. But with two extra vertebrae and odd thumbs, the gypsies left him behind. Paris wrenched what sanity remained out of Quinn, and yet heartened him with possibility. First a few years with Kilometer Zero, Paris’ most dangerous arts project, then a year at Atlantis Books. Theatre, publishing, squatting, political mischief—are you happy now Quinn?

“Bored,” puffed our hero, as he pursued adrenaline around the world while overseeing Strangecode, his internet consulting company, and Wheeled Migration, a cycle touring venture. Quinn is currently sitting behind a computer somewhere. Or so you’re led to believe.
