Johan has established a reputation as an inspiring motivational speaker with a straightforward and entertaining, yet deeply provocative message.
A product of Humboldt Park Chicago, an area known for it’s gang violence and crime, Johan was able to move past the obstacles and traps that ensnared so many of his peers, and live a life that was far from ordinary. His dreams, choices and determination took him from a ghetto kid to a national speaker. He uses his life story to help people of all ages believe in the power of their dreams and understand the impact their lives can make in the world around them.
Johan’s ability to connect with the audience is a rare gift and one you don't want your audience to miss.
Johan is one of the lead counselors and educators for the CANDO program in the inner city of Chicago, a deadly shooter from three-point range, and has listened to “Earth, Wind and Fire”.
