 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.
