ABOUT JOHNNY WILSON:
Johnny’s grandparents first moved to Idyllwild in 1932. As with many, they came here on their honeymoon… and never left.
Johnny Wilson is a born and raised Idyllwild local. In 1998 Johnny left his hometown to go to college in Santa Barbara. After graduating UCSB with a Bachelor's Degree in Film Studies, he then got the travel bug and visited 27 countries, two of which he decided to live in full time (Norway and Costa Rica.) Although spending every Christmas and most summers in his hometown, he decided to move back to Idyllwild full time in 2011.
Soon after moving back ‘on the hill’, Johnny reconnected with an elementary school classmate and decided to pop the big question (she said "yes".) They now have a 3 year old son and a newborn daughter born in July of 2016 – the 4th generation of “Wilsons” growing up in Idyllwild.
"After being around the world and experiencing all different walks of life, I am truly blessed and proud to call Idyllwild my hometown. There is nowhere else I'd rather be than right here raising a family of my own, and having a career that I love. The community and the people here are as inspiring as the nature and mountains that surround them. If you are ever in the area, I'd love to be the one to introduce you to our quaint little town."
