About Brando Quinn - Travel Agent Extraordinaire
After graduating from high school, Brando Quinn enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, 'I served honorably under President Ronald Reagan while serving with the Air Training Command in Mississippi, Alaska (AAC), and then Arizona.' He then decided to join up with 'The Few and the Proud' the United States Marines and served under President George Bush in the Middle East during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm on the front lines of battle.'
Brando then thought some of his experiences could translate to the silver movie screen so he ventured to Hollywood, California. He was soon playing secret agents opposite Robert Vaughn and Erik Estrada in sci-fi thrillers, and behind the scenes parts in such notable movies as “Forrest Gump”, and “Star Trek Generations”. He did walk-on roles in award-winning television sitcoms like “Coach” and “Murphy Brown”, and finally, landed a starring role in a segment of the hit television series, “The Love Connection”, where he was the only guest in the show’s history to be paid to go on two dates instead of the traditional one.
Quinn then decided to explore the world on his own; in 1999-2000 he bought a one-way ticket to Paris France, and toured throughout Europe, the United Kingdom, and North Africa. After he returned to the U.S. he wrote and published several books, recorded 5 Music CD's/Music Videos with a five piece band called "RavenPheat", and then returned to education completing his Bachelor degree with honors at Kaplan University, Master of Divinity degree at Liberty University, and Executive Juris Doctorate (EJD) degree at Concord University School of Law.
Brando Quinn decided to open his own travel agency in 2012 after traveling to over 24 foreign countries and 49 of the 50 United States (bet you can't guess which state he has never been to?). His agency is recognized by (ASTA) the American Society of Travel Agents which is committed to the Principles of Professional Conduct, Ethics, and Continued Enhancement and Improvement of the Travel Industry (Member #900226334).

They enjoyed special onboard entertainment and focused lectures highlighting the music of the regions traveled through including the sounds of New Orleans Jazz, the strains of the uniquely American musical art form the Delta Blues, the Rock and Soul of Memphis, and the homegrown Country Music melodies from Nashville!
