MEET JOHNNY

ACTOR / MUSICIAN / ARTIST

Johnny was born and raised in Batavia, IL, just west of Chicago. He has experience with various Broadway and TV/Film projects. The majority of his work is grounded in the development of new characters and stories. He holds a BFA from Penn State University.
"Because I have accommodated to a hearing world, most people don't realize that I happen to have moderate-to-severe sensorineural hearing loss in both ears. I have used hearing aids since the age of 3. Like the overwhelming majority of hard of hearing/deaf children, I was mainstreamed. My experience drives me to tell inclusive stories over various platforms that ignite curiosity and empathy in the individual so that they may find belonging."
