Johnny also recently wrapped work on the William Fichtner helmed directed Cold Brook as well as starring in the soon to be released feature, Invincible.
Strong was drawn to martial arts at age 7 which paved the way for him to do all of his own stunts in his features. He began with studying the Judo. Johnny is also adept in other styles of martial arts such as American Kickboxing, Western style Boxing and Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do. He also earned his 2nd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Chris Lisciandro.

In addition to his own records, Johnny collaborated with longtime artist and friend, Bryan Arrigo, on a side project called ‘The Valerio Incident’: Axiom’, where Arrigo wrote all the songs and sings, and Johnny produced and played the music.
Johnny continues to push the boundaries of his creativity and life; whether it’s making films, music, steel art, or pursuing his outdoor adventures in the mountains, hiking, climbing, shooting, hunting, and “Living”. Always living outside the proverbial box, Johnny is a master blade smith and his knives have been on the coveted cover of Blade magazine. By the way did you know that he is also a helicopter pilot?
With a strong appetite for always reinventing himself, Johnny plans on making his directorial debut soon with an undisclosed project.
