A family man, Living with a passion for creativity, Breaking the stereotypical lifestyle as an Asian American in the film industry. Coming from a traditional Chinese family and being raised as an American was quite an interesting one. Johnny always had a thing for the arts. He lived in Queens, New York and when he was 3 years old he had a love for drawing and started drawing and found ways to tell his stories whether it was drawing on paper or on the walls at home.
As he went to high school, Johnny discovered the art of movie-making via his brother's friends while shooting a homemade movie in my backyard. At that time, he moved to Long Island, and the school has a TV studio with linear editing systems. He decided to take his friend's film and edit it there. It took him 4-6 months before finally completing the 8-minute short film and it made him popular and received his first award as a filmmaker. This is when he decided to major in film for college. Throughout college, he was known to be the “go to” person for any projects that are in need of help with a creative eye and proper execution. Johnny even had his first job as a Director of Photography and created his first music video to be broadcast at BET music channel during his 2nd year at college.
By 2006 he shot and edited over 10 narrative films, 15 Music Videos and over 50 cooking television shows. Today, he is currently working on numerous productions, producing and directing a food/travel show going into a third season, having a loving wife, a family of 2 children, a home, and living the dream most Asian Americans struggle with.
