Visionary Kerry O'Quinn Part 1

Kerry O'Quinn has worked in nearly every capacity of the entertainment industry during his incredible and unique career – film, tv, conventions, musicals, soundtracks, and of course ... the magazine industry. Kerry created and founded Starlog magazine, along with a slew of other indelible classics like Fangoria. He has influenced and inspired thousands of creatives, all while consistently moving forward on his own projects.

In part one of a two-part in-depth interview, Kerry will talk about his Texas upbringings, his first conversation with Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and his fateful meeting with Norman Jacobs.  A meeting that led to the beginning of a long and adventurous career, albeit one that started randomly enough in the Soap Opera world. 

But eventually, it leads to Starlog. And that's when things start to get really interesting.

You won't want to miss this truly inspiration conversation with Kerry. And make sure to check back for part 2.
