From a very young age, Johann became obsessed with cinema, watching classic action movies from the 1980s. This infatuation continued through his teenage years as he experimented with his home videos. He studied the theory of Film Studies in Derby and Production in Sheffield, where he explored screen writing, music composition and sound design. Throughout his studies, Johann has worked on short films, music videos, radio shows and even dabbling in acting and commercial work. Since collaborating with Enigmatic Productions, he has worked both on his own projects and freelance sound work. Johann is the creator and host of the Enigmatic podcast The Trash Tapes.
