Quentin is a dynamic digital storyteller who can help your organization break through the noise.
A political journalist-turned communications strategist, he is no stranger to unique, often delicate problems that need solving. Quentin loves helping clients achieve fundamental success with carefully crafted messages, from data-rich social media and community engagement campaigns to media outreach and long-term planning.
Before joining Goff Public, Quentin helped lead successful grassroots advocacy and communication plans for some of Minnesota’s leading organizations. He also worked for the University of Iowa, where he helped lead the campus’s flagship social media efforts and later, its governmental relations and lobbying practices at the state and federal level.
At a breakneck pace, he covered the ins and outs of the 2012 and 2016 Iowa caucuses, tracking massive spending and digging deep into pressing voter issues. In recent years, he has used his penchant for politics to help elevate state and national Democrats, from 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg to Iowa’s 2018 Democratic gubernatorial nominee Fred Hubbell and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams.
A relatively new Minnesota resident, Quentin is a passionate “shop small” advocate who enjoys supporting the state’s many craft breweries, quaint coffee houses and local retailers. He and his boyfriend, Eric, live with their adventurous golden retriever, Bear, in the Mill District neighborhood of Minneapolis.
