While in Berkeley, Quinn was a brother of Alpha Delta Phi (California Chapter). After graduating, he worked as a model in Paris, Barcelona, and Milan, landing parts in more than 35 international television commercials. When he returned to the United States, Quinn landed the starring role of Finn in The WB summer series Young Americans.

Before acting, music was Quinn's main pursuit. He studied with Joe Satriani and played in the Los Angeles-based bands Mad Theory and Scattergood, which led to a recording contract.

Ed Quinn recently did his first solo demo CD, entitled Quinn, with three songs produced by his friend Chris Lloyd: "Because of You", "Cause I Do" and "We Had It Made". Another 5 song EP was released in 2013 titled "ED QUINN" and is available on iTunes and amazon. Songs include "Lights Out Love" "Miles Away" and "Overdose".
