Visual Storyteller: Writer, Producer, Graphic Designer, Photographer & Content Creator.
Born and raised in the Peninsula of Northern California, Johnny always knew at an early age that he was gifted with the creative talent. With it came a keen eye to detail and the passion that would eventually lead him to grow and expand in his skills. Along the way he learned to build relationships and know the importance of working with a team, uplifting them up to their greatest potential.
Throughout the years Johnny took interest in all forms of media from acting, graphic design, screenwriting and photography. Johnny participated in major films such as Spider-Man, Bee Season, The Dark Knight Rises, Saving Mr. Banks, and TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Having worked in these productions, Johnny was inspired to become a film producer and share his storytelling with the world. In the late 2000’s he began working with Kevin Ciappetta on a psychological thrilled titled Vendetta, a film inspired in the style of Alfred Hitchcock. Attached were veteran talents such as Leslie Easterbrook (Police Academy, The Devil’s Rejects) and producer of Darkness Falls, late John Fasano, set to direct. Tyler Mane (X-Men, Halloween) took an interest in the project as well. The film has been pushed back since Fasano's passing.
In 2015, Johnny was invited to Univision, a major Latino TV network, to talk about his successful weight loss transformation on Despierta America (equivalent to Good Morning America) using Alejandro Chaban’s (actor/host) product Yes You Can! Since then he’s been a public figure, encouraging others on their weight loss journey using his creativity. That same year he served as Art Director on Blair Skinner’s Eleanora: The Forgotten Princess, a short film, and had previously worked on Skinner’s comedic web series Stand-Up Girls, expanding his graphic design skills. Johnny also collaborated with Bob Lloyd (Emmy Winner for Lost's special effects) and designed actor Mike Vogel's official website for ten years.
As of 2017, Johnny is now located in Orange County in Southern California, is the founder of Films by Johnny, and wrote his first feature film The Final Bow (1920s mystery thriller). He is also serving in the PICS (Photographers in Christ's Service) Ministry and Saddleback Visual Arts at the Anaheim campus.
