Johnnie Semerad grew up in Schenectady New York. Played football and was captain of the wrestling team. His dream was to move to New York City and become an artist.
At eighteen he attended Pratt Institute to become the next great American illustrator. The fine art career quickly gave way to a career in computers and special effects.
QuietMan was started a few years later. An innovative company with many firsts. The first Beatles music video, the first prime time Emmy for a tv commercial, the first five second tv commercials. QuietMan has won virtually every advertising award, Emmys and even a Grammy.
Johnnie will tell you his greatest joys are his daughters Emma and Dara.
