About the Author

Johnny Sirpilla is a passionate storyteller. The topics can vary but the intensity drawing laughter or tears to create a shared human experience is his driving force. Through our shared stories, we can discover strength when we’re feeling weakened, be encouraged when we are down, and serve as a light to others who live in darkness.

Johnny has been known to say that he no longer knows who is true authentic self is due to profound impact others have had on him.  He has been blessed to be challenged, encouraged, and hold a front row seat to masters in communication displaying loving humanity who have guided him to be the leader he is today.  He is continuing to evolve into the servant leader he has been called to be.  Johnny is thankful to those mentors, leaders, or those from brief encounters who displayed courage, kindness, and strength when it was most needed.  His “authentic self” is forever changed due to those encounters.
