They're my school  •  Cinematic Artist, Telltale Games. Previously QA Tester, Telltale Games.
I've known Johnny for over 6 years. When he sets his mind to something, he will find a way to make it happen no matter the odds or who's aga ... inst him. He's already gone above and beyond steps to making his business a real tangible thing. I've come across many others who have given up because they found it too hard. Johnny does not give up and I don't see that happening any time soon.
Jonathan Seidenfeld
They're my current cofounder  •  Advisor, SVA Games Inc. and Owner, Seidenfeld Communications.
I've been consistently impressed with Johnny's passion for the project and his drive to get things done. His vision and leadership ability a ... re second to none. I have no doubt that he will be successful with his current project, and am confident that all of his goals will ultimately be achieved.
Jamie King
They're my advisor  •  Special Projects, Echelon Software and Product Owner, Jamie Inc..
Johnny is already a great entrepreneur. From our earliest conversations, it was clear to me that he is highly intelligent and very resourcef ... ul. I've advised a lot of fledgling game developers, yet few have demonstrated the clarity of vision and quality of documents that Johnny has shown me. Considering he doesn't have a long track record in making video games, I was surprised / impressed by the calibre of team members helping him, and our conversations have been succinct and of how value. He is clearly very tenacious in his approach and he has consistently followed up and/or delivered on next steps established in our phone calls. I enjoy talking to him, he listens but sticks to his convictions. I believe he has identified 'space' in a lucrative market and I want him to succeed. To qualify, I am credited on over 80+ video games. I've raised money for a games company created new IP, built award winning franchises for a public company and helped a number of tech start ups along the way.
