MacQuinn Manning, formerly known as Cuddy Q, was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He found Guam as an inspiration to become an artist with his sound through playing his ukulele and creating viral videos in the process. He served in the United States Navy and as a merchant marine with the Navy’s Military Sealift Command and experienced life in over 20 different countries.

MacQuinn is the host of the controversial and entertaining #YupISaidIt Podcast where he gives a different perspective on life, love, mental health, and everything else in between. Through his podcast, he wants to be the voice of freedom, the voice of expression, the voice of reason, and the voice of Guam. With the platform MacQuinn has provided for others to express themselves, he plans to make his show the most electrifying and entertaining podcast on Guam.
