DeQwan Young was born and raised in Pontiac, MI. As a child, the movies unleashed his imagination. Movies made him believe in fairy tales, underdogs, and unlimited possibilities. He took everything that he saw on the silver screen and used it to propel himself to a football scholarship at St. Joseph’s College; graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications (2008). After a long career playing football (both amateur and professional), he decided it was time to live out his other passion, directing. He started his production company, Qwantity Entertainment & Media in 2013. He has produced television spots, mini-documentaries, and conducted interviews with Ronda Rousey, Travis Browne, Antonio Brown, and more.
“There is a movie unfolding at every waking moment, they just need directors.”
