Videographer gives FFRF more exposure

Name: Bruce A. Johnson.

Where and when I was born: Ann Arbor, Mich., in 1958.

Education: Bachelor’s degree in broadcasting and film from Boston University in 1981.

Family: Wife Cynthia Struye and daughters Mallory and Erin.

How I came to work at FFRF: Heard from a friend that the FFRF was looking to do more video communications. I have experience in building small video studios, and 35 years experience in commercial, public and corporate television, so it seemed like a good match.

What I do here: Shoot, edit, direct and produce multimedia content, including “Newsbites” and our Facebook Live program “Ask An Atheist.”
What I like best about it: It’s a job that needs to be done.

What gets old about it: Nothing yet!

I spend a lot of time thinking about: Ethics and hypocrisy, solar energy, electric transportation.

I spend little if any time thinking about: The past.

My religious upbringing was: Catholic.

My doubts about religion started: When I was quite young, I started to see the disconnect between what was preached in gospels and how people actually lived. And when I was kicked out of guitar mass for playing lead during “Michael Row The Boat Ashore.”

Things I like: Solar energy, electric transportation, bicycles, volleyball, alpine skiing, travel.

Things I smite: People who are irrationally wedded to gasoline. Harleys with ridiculously loud exhaust systems.

In my golden years: I have built a teardrop-style camper, and I want to tow it behind a Tesla and see the parts of the United States I haven’t gotten to yet.
