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 breaks the rule that those who can’t star coach. Maybe true in sports, but not in narration. He blends fun with never forgetting it is a serious business better than anyone I know.
