In his personal life, John’s wife and toddler son are, no doubt, subjected to Cal Football in any spare time he has (uh, go Bears?). See for yourself by following him on Twitter: @MrJohnCheng.


See John’s IMDb credits, too. Those are almost as numerous as his Cal Football tweets.


John will pass along his advice for developing the content and relationships needed to take your creative work to the next business level at the 2018 Seattle Film Summit.
