Quentin Young

A writer, climate communicator and emerging comic creator working creatively as a storyteller with the aim of reaching mainstream audiences on the issue of climate change.

I’m a writer, climate storyteller and emerging comic creator at Truth/Dare Media – we’re a publishing startup that focuses on telling important stories through pop culture mediums like comics, audiobooks and other forms of popular entertainment. The Wizard of O2 is our debut comic, and I’m currently working on a cli-fi graphic novel titled Dreamstormer – it’s going to be epic!

I come from a professional background in environmental engineering where I worked on civil construction projects like roads and bridges, sizing pipes and channels for the effective drainage of rainwater, and making sure that this runoff is then collected in treatment basins to reduce the flow of traffic pollutants to the natural environment. After doing this local-scale work for some time, I turned my attention to larger issues like global warming and, building on my tertiary underpinning in the environmental fields, I became a trained climate communicator. Today, I work creatively as a climate storyteller with the aim of reaching mainstream audiences on the issue of climate change.

My creative pursuits have also led me to the film industry where, as a represented scriptwriter, my screenplays have been accepted for submission by leading Hollywood companies including Walt Disney Studios, 20th Century Studios (formerly Fox) and Participant Media. While I chip away at that rock, I hope to continue building an audience for my climate storytelling work and for climate stories in general through my current venture, Truth/Dare Media.
