Meet QUINN LUNDBERG → co-founder at LOOM • 👋🏼 I am originally from Edmonton Alberta, Canada and I am a mother of two children. I spent my early 20s as a professional dancer and then moved to New York City, where I taught dancing and attended Hunter College – receiving my undergraduate degree in International Conflict Resolution. I spent some time at the United Nations working with UNICEF and then proceeded to co-found a nonprofit organization, Growing Voices that supported local leaders in making sustainable community change. I worked to alleviate domestic violence in North Carolina and helped to build a community center in rural Malawi. After traveling to various developing countries and learning how to create community in remote spots around the world, I began my Masters degree in Public Policy at UCLA, graduating in 2014 with a concentration in International and Nonprofit Policy. I am inspired by women and their ability to manage countless responsibilities within a system that contains institutional barriers for them and many others. I am passionate about creating community for families and pushing forward a shame-free environment that is welcoming to everyone in their unique reproductive experience. #thisisloom via @avocadocat x @wallforapricots
The Net Worth of Quinn Lundberg
How rich is Quinn Lundberg? As of late-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $300,000, earned through success in her various endeavors. She’s also benefited from the wealth of her husband, who has an estimated net worth of over $20 million. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
According to Quinn, she was born into an everyday middle-class family. Growing-up, she developed a strong love for nature, and spent a lot of her childhood hiking and generally being outdoors, which helped her keep her feet on the ground, even after the success that would come upon her in the future. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled into the CUNY Baccalaureate Program in New York City, where she completed a certificate in International Conflict Resolution, and met there her future business partner Melissa Leschuck.
After completing her studies, she initially volunteered for the organization UNICEF for which she was a part of their web production unit. She was also highly active in ballet, having learned to dance at a young age. Later on, she would foray into dancing as a career as well, gaining several accomplishments and awards. Eventually, she decided to go backpacking, and travelled to various third world countries; it was then that she had the idea of a charity.
Along with her friend Leschuck, Lundberg established the foundation called Growing Voices. The organization’s aim is to help under-developed communities by supporting businesses and trade. The approach of the company is vastly different, as they avoid just giving out money when it comes to helping others; they work with various local businesses, and encourage them by helping them to improve while looking for avenues which can help them become sustainable. The headquarters of the company is in Los Angeles, and she runs everything from the top.
Husband – Zach Galifianakis
Quinn’s husband found popularity in 2001, after he was featured in a “Comedy Central Presents” special leading him to gain his own show, entitled “Late World with Zach”. His fame started reaching an international audience in 2009, when he became one of the stars of “The Hangover”, the first of a trilogy of films, which follow the misadventures of a group of friends whose antics cause them to deal with problematic aftermaths often involving their humiliation.
His roles in these films led him to appear in other high-profile projects, including “Due Date”, “The Campaign”, and “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)”. In 2017, he was cast as the villain in “The Lego Batman Movie”, voicing the DC Comics character, The Joker. The film is the first spin-off installment of “The Lego Movie”, and he stars alongside Will Arnett and Michael Cera. Zach is also known for his Emmy Award-winning talk show – “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis” which features him interviewing several celebrity guests. The episodes are short, and often consist of deliberate comedic errors, while Zach takes on an awkward and antagonistic attitude towards his guests, which often involve him and the guest trading insults.
Marriage and Personal Life
Quinn and Zach were married in 2010, in a private ceremony held in Canada – the two had been in a relationship since they were teenagers – the wedding was followed by a celebration at various restaurants and bars with friends as well as family. She did mention in an interview that she enjoys her husband’s work and supports him in his career, however, it is difficult to manage the celebrity status that comes along with it. The couple have two children, and do their best to keep them out of the celebrity spotlight so they don’t mention many details about their kids.
Due to this lack of information, Zach even jokes about calling their kid “It” and that when he turns 16, ‘it’ will have to choose his/her own name. However, with their second son, they chose to be a little more public about his name. The family resides on a farm, and they mentioned that they are interested in having more children. Due to Quinn’s desire for privacy, she opts not to have any online presence. She doesn’t have any accounts associated with any major social media websites, and according to her, it helps her live life the way she wants to.
