Quentin was born and raised in Temuka. His legal career started in 1989 for a commercial law firm in Christchurch. He moved back to Timaru in 1992 and joined a local firm where he became a partner in 1994. By 2004 Quentin was the commercial law partner for the firm and in that year, he decided to branch out on his own. His education and experience has given him the grounding to effectively govern many businesses and organisations for the local and national community. Quentin is married to Kathy with two boys, Abraham and Solomon and has a keen interest in karate.

Appointed in 2009 to represent the local marae on Te Runanga O Ngai Tahu, the South Island iwi that oversees $700 million in assets, Quentin has extensive experience in voluntary and professional governance roles at a local and national level. Current governance roles include Chair of Trust Aoraki Limited (since 2004), having been first appointed as an independent director on establishment of the company in 2002. He is also a trustee of the South Canterbury Kiwi Can Charitable Trust, a life skills education programme for children. Until December 2009, he was a member of the South Canterbury District Health Board for 9 years.

Quentin's experience includes contractual and commercial issues, dispute resolution (including acting as an independent mediator) and assisting clients in civil disputes covering a wide range of areas such as employment, resource management and commercial activities.
