Johnnie would consider himself a "regular Nebraska guy." He was born in Lincoln in 1982. After high school he worked in construction and at a few local restaurants before going to SCC and UNL. After graduation he worked as a journalist and broadcaster, most recently KFOR radio in Lincoln. Johnnie started his career in real estate in 2020 because he loves working with people and wants to use his skills to help people find homes, especially first-time homebuyers. In his spare time, he likes to jam on the drums with friends, go for a long bike-ride, watch movies and talking about Huskers and The Simpsons! Johnnie has volunteered with Special Olympics and Meals on Wheels.
