Quddus’ love for bringing out the best in people inspired him to go from interviewing the biggest stars to developing them. Chris Rock once said, “If Oprah and Ryan Seacrest had a love child, the kid would end up being like Quddus.” He came into the international spotlight as a host on MTV’s hit show “Total Request Live” (TRL) in 2001. Then, after five years on MTV, Quddus left the network to pioneer new media as one of the first to make the shift from TV to the web. He’s hosted record breaking livestreams for global events like the inaugural Global Citizen Festival, the premiere of “Avatar” and the Grammy Awards red carpet. With his unique ability to bring joy and passion into any audience, Quddus also went on to work with networks such as NBC, ABC and CBS, inspiring The Associated Press to call him “the coolest guy of television.” Beyond the screen, Quddus’ passion for human development is what burns the brightest. Working in artist development with Interscope Records, training the hosts who successfully launched MTV Canada, and facilitating leadership workshops internationally led Quddus to launching the innovative experiential media training program, Camera Ready in 2017.
