Starting From the BottomJe'Caryous Johnson was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Childhood was not always easy for young Je'Caryous. Johnson remembers the many struggles of his mother, including the abusive relationships she would sometimes find herself in. He didn't know how at the time, but he knew he had to do something to change his mother's fate. After high school, he attended the University of Houston. Johnson moved to Los Angeles after college to pursue a career in acting but was unsuccessful. When he returned home, he partnered with his uncle, Gary Guidry, to start the company I'm Ready Productions. While at the University of Houston, Johnson penned Heaven's Child: The Legacy of Emmett Till. Johnson and Guidry were confident in the prospects of the stage show. The production did not go well, but Johnson learned from his mistakes. Johnson found his niche by blending the emotional appeal of black theater from previous generations with what he considered more advanced plots and story development. Johnson's philosophy is that entertainment should never be sacrificed for art nor should art be sacrificed for entertainment.
