 Johnny was born in Chicago to a lovely family that while happy to have him were nonetheless upset – having hoped for a Portugese Water Dog.   Johnny graduated with honors from Loyola University of Chicago and let his prestigious education go to waste while pursuing a career in acting.  His quest took him from Chicago to New York to Los Angeles and back to New York where he currently resides with his sweetie and his dogs.

“Johnny Heller is among the most fluent craftsmen in audiobooks.  Although he’s often associated with programs for young adults and children, he’s actually far more versatile, turning in highly-engaging performances on various nonfiction titles.  On these, he wears his authority as a narrator lightly and disarmingly. A pleasure to work with.”
