Eric David Johnson (aka DJ Bunny Ears)
A little about me: I am a music supervisor, DJ, director, musician, filmmaker, radio host, book publisher, independent record label owner, writer, journalist, artist, curator, futurist, photographer & producer.
After living in Portland, Oregon where I worked as a Music Supervisor/Producer at Wieden + Kennedy for over 8 ½ years, I made the move to New York City in February 2009, where I was the Executive Music Producer at Young & Rubicam for nearly two years, before I moved again to Chicago to become the Executive Producer of Music & Integration at DDB, where I am now currently working. Though my background and current status is truly rooted as an independent artist, I’ve now spent over 11 years in the advertising industry working with such clients as Nike, Coke, Honda, Nokia, Target, ESPN, Bacardi, Budweiser, McDonald's, Gatorade, Land Rover, NASCAR, Diet Coke, NHL, Starbucks, LG, MTV, VH1, State Farm, Oreo, EA Games, Honda, Sharp, Amazon, PowerAde, Avon, Orange, Vodaphone, REI, Campbell’s, Colgate, Office Depot, Fisher Price, UPS, Bayer, Dell, etc.

I have also directed music videos for M. Ward, Cursive and Chin Up Chin Up, as well as TV commercials for Nike.
