W H O AM I ?
Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, João Montez - or John... or even Johnny as he likes being called - was always the family performer. Inside doors, of course.
After thinking about pursuing a business management career, João decided he wanted to be a communicator, once he had the talent for it. So with that, at the age of twenty, he graduated from the Catholic University of Portugal in Media Studies. Before he even finished his course, he won an internship as a radio host on a commercial/pop hit radio station, one of the most famous among the younger Portuguese audience, called Cidade FM (owned by Media Capital Group).
Broadcasting on a national level for almost a year, this experience lead him to work with the most well-known Portuguese entertainment promotion company, Música no Coração; which has incorporated within it more than five radio stations. João hosted his own radio show on one of them, MEO SW (a radio station sponsored by a quadruple-play service provider, and one of the most important operators settled in Portugal, called MEO).
Along this fortuitous career, there was always the ambition to accomplish more and more and João Montez knew from the beginning he was a storyteller. This inspired him to leave home and move to Los Angeles where he studied acting at the New York Film Academy. He finished his intensive one-year acting for film and TV program, and now he's climbing high in TV and Film industry. He stopped performing just inside, and opened the doors to his abilites.
He is now a TV host and Actor and he works for the most watched TV channel in Portugal: TVI.
He's represented by the prestigious agency, HIT MANAGEMENT and João Belo is his Publicist.
