“Johnny is not only personable, but has the highest integrity. I was always pleased to have him represent me and the company where ever he went and whatever his assignment was. This always led to success in all he was asked to do as well as what he felt would assist and benefit the company without direct supervision and direction. This creativity and initiative was a great benefit to the company and to all the associated workers. I would hire him again without reservation.”

Johnny is one of the few people that not only will win in life, he deserves it!”
“Johnny is one of the most positive and tactful colleagues I have ever worked with. This makes him and exceedingly talented recruiter, manager, trainer, and leader.

Johnny’s Personal Philosophy
If Something Is Worth Doing, It’s Worth Winning.
This creed has been Johnny’s own motto and outlook. His belief is he has much to offer, and give, and learn. Competition is a motivator, along with comparison to what others have achieved. This is his standard of what is possible. He is only content when he knows he’s done everything he can to be the best he could possibly be.
In his creative life, Johnny is an actor, producer, and director. He acts regularly in stage productions, film and television, as well modeling and commercial work.
He was the founder and the first Artistic Director of the award-winning Utah Repertory Theater Company, hailed by BroadwayWorld as “Utah’s most exciting up-and-coming theater company.” And was the co-creator/producer of Skyfall Circuit Nights, Salt Lake City’s premier monthly themed circuit party, which has featured DJ’s, dancers, and queer celebrities from across the world. Additionally, he co-created the company LOUD+QUEER to produce large scale fundraising events and concerts, bringing in top LGBTQ+ artists and allies such as Todrick Hall, Thelma Houston and Andrew Christian. In addition, he frequently volunteers for non-profit arts organizations and LGBTQ-centered advocacy groups.
Johnny enjoys singing and playing the piano, particularly musical theater and jazz, and anything related to the prohibition era! He is also a competitive distance runner, and frequently competes in marathons, triathlons and endurance sports. He completed his first half iron man in 2019 and continues to compete in a few events per year. He is the oldest of seven children and maintains a close relationship with his family. The passing of his younger brother Ben on June 13, 2021 deeply impacted him. In honor of his brother, he created the non-profit organization the Dread Love Mission (“Dread Love” was his brother’s pen name) as a way to promote education for and provide assistance to those who struggle with drug addiction.
