Patch: What do you find special about Patch?
Johnson: Before Patch, it was very difficult for small- to medium-sized businesses to efficiently reach their local target audience through the Internet. The mega-companies have been leveraging cutting edge technologies and media teams to hyper-target their message, allowing them to appear as the local resource, whereas the true local businesses were left with fewer options, primarily the more outdated advertising mediums. Patch has changed this. Patch enables local, small-to-medium sized businesses to reach their exact audience, without wasting impressions, within a budget respectful of small businesses and not needing to battle for prime online real-estate with the national brands.
Patch: What are your personal interests? What do you love about Washington the most?
Johnson: Washington is my home—that’s what I love most. I am avid in sports, both as a fan and as a player. I enjoy a highly competitive game of soccer, basketball or football, with a great appreciation for the values that make for successful teams and individuals: camaraderie, passion, drive, desire, integrity, honor and commitment.
