Johnny Davis

Sr. Creative Director

Johnny Davis takes great joy in the connection between his love of experiencing stories and his calling to create them. His goal is to design experiences that elicit an emotional response, be it profound connection, sheer joy, or a call to action.

At Storyland Studios, Johnny lives out this mission as he guides projects through all phases of design, from concept to completion. Some of these projects include Poverty Encounter (THEA award), Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N., Las Vegas Mob Experience at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino, and the Wings Over Israel flight-simulating theatrical experience in San Diego.

Prior to his time with Storyland, Johnny worked at Designworks as the concept lead for Pretend City Children’s Museum in Orange County, San Diego Children’s Art Museum, and West Virginia State Museum of Culture and History. He attended Mira Costa College and San Francisco’s Academy of Art University, earning a B.A. in Illustration with a focus on character animation, and mentoring under Conrad Vernon (director of Shrek 2 and voice of “Gingy” for Dreamworks Animation).

Johnny loves making memories with his three kids and his wife, and those experiences are what ultimately fill his imagination and fuel his design. He strives to be the best husband and father he can be, considers himself a theme park junkie, and is a magnificent kitbasher on the side.
