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."
"Johnny has always been a true company member. Supportive of his fellow cast members, professionally dedicated, prepared and inventive...Witnessing his growth as an actor and collaborator has been a most rewarding experience."
