Biography

Johnny Ngo is a first generation Chinese American screenwriter. As the only son of two refugees, he gravitates to stories dealing with second chances and acceptance. Johnny got his start working for international production house Vendome Pictures where he acquired 4 years of development experience in television and features before writing CONVERSION, a feature about conversion therapy camps from the perspective of an ex-attendee turned counselor. It landed him an opportunity to work with legendary producer Chris Lee (PHILADELPHIA, JERRY MAGUIRE). His current feature, HOLD STILL, VINCENT, tells the life of Vincent Chin and how his untimely death sparked an Asian-American civil rights movement never-before-seen in American history. Johnny hails from the San Gabriel Valley, the epicenter of fine Asian cuisine in Los Angeles County. He’s currently repped by Writ Large Management and CAA.
