David C. Johnson |
Johnson is the President, CEO and founder of Speedster Productions.
The amazing success of their flagship product, KickAss Party 1.0 launched
on September 27 of last year, has put him in the party spotlight.
Previous to establishing Speedster Productions, David served with
Carrier as a heating and air conditioning repair man, serving as technical
consultant to Robert DiNiro for his role in the film "Brazil."
Johnson holds several degrees from various reputable collegiate establishments
including the School of Hard Knocks, The Bryman Institute, ITT and
Radio Shack Home Study Series. He currently hosts a seminar series
entitled "Kicking Ass and Taking E-Mail Addresses."
After his promising career path as a Lego architect was disrupted
by a terrible industrial strength vacuum cleaner incident, David turned
to music for his inspiration. His interest in all-things-audio led
to an increasing credit card debt and multiple trips to Circuit City.
David is now the most renowned audiophile in his residence. Even his
ex-girlfriend continues to comment on his audio prowess, "He's got
such big... speakers!"
a child, young David was honored by the Sons of Norway as the most
KickAss Nord in the neighborhood. Friends say he could often be seen
sporting "wood", a traditional Norwegian wind instrument. When asked
of his most memorable childhood experience, Johnson replies, "Seeing
the original Star Wars in the theatre... that Leia was hot!"
Now, in his spare time, Johnson likes to listen to favorite easy listening
bands Offspring and Rage Against the Machine. Dave is also practicing
for his upcoming appearance on the New Gong Show where he will pay
tribute to his his idol, Chef, by singing a medley of tunes from the
South Park cartoon series. (By the way, it's a little known fact that
David is also delightful in the kitchen. Be sure to try his white
chocolate salty balls.)
Outside of work, David has a wide range of interests. He is the national
snow boarding champion of South San Jose, an area known for it's rolling
bunny hills and mild winters. Additionally, Johnson teaches at "CrashEmUp
Car Clinic", a driving school for those who feel compelled to drive
3-4 times the posted speed limit. Anyone who would like their car
prepared for an insurance claim, please feel free to sign up.
David is a renowned connoisseur of fine wines. His weekends are filled
by pursuing the best Merlot at Beverages and More. In 1998, Mr. Johnson
painstakingly consumed over 200 bottles of vino in pursuit of this
noble goal. "I won't stop till I drop," says Johnson, slurring uncontrollably.
"When I drink, I get inspired. And when I'm inspired, sh*t happens.
How do you think we came up with KickAss Party?!"
