Robert P. Johnson
Associate - screenwriter
Robert P. Johnson was born and raised in Oakland, California. After receiving an MFA from UCLA’s Department of Film, Television and Theatre, he became a professional screenwriter, penning several films and teleplays and earning First Place honors in the Samuel Goldwyn and Jack Nicholson Screenwriting Awards. His first book, Thirteen Moons: A Year in the Wilderness, chronicled a Henry David Thoreau-esque year he passed in the high Sierra Nevada living out of a teepee on the American River. His second book, The Culling, is a “cli-fi” thriller illuminating overpopulation’s impact on all facets of our environment and the desperate attempts by a cadre of scientists to rectify matters. This work caused him to be invited to collaborate on the 2017 paper, “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice” which, with over 20,000 signatories from 184 countries, reigns as the most widely-signed scientific paper. He currently lives in Santa Barbara where he raises Monarch butterflies and foists homegrown milkweed plants on most everyone he encounters.
