As a cyber journalist and activist, Punish has penned over 250 articles on freedom, liberty, and justice around the world writing opt-eds for VeteransToday.com, MoneyNewsNow.com, and other truth telling web sites.
ASCAP member Punish songs have appeared in movies such as Paul Bright’s 2012 sci-fi indie movie “Goliad Uprising” (Cup of Joe, The Magnificent Afghanistan, and Gaza City). IMDB.com
Punish has done other media including the locally famous and high acclaimed Bad Brad and Johnny Punish Show; a music talk radio podcast show at the Mojo Zone Studio in Playa del Carmen Mexico (2006).
For his “day job”, he runs an global media company partnering with other outgoing peoples who are of like mind and spirit.
In 2014, Punish started a new global peoples think tank called “Middle East Union Congress“. The idea of this congress is to hook up with like minded caring international movers and shakers to put forth a new paradigm of real forward thinking solutions for a 21st century and beyond Middle East that places its people front and center using coming technologies and new ways of thinking that empower freedom, liberty and justice for all effectively rendering null and void the wholesale raping of resources for the global elite and the subsequent use of racism and bigotry to divide instead of empower.

Punish is currently working promoting eco-building projects e.g..Earthbag Punish; a project that seeks 100% self-sustainability using dirt to build homes along with solar power, recycled water, composting toilets and other eco-techniques that make cents.
Born in Bronx NYC, USA in 1963 to a mother from the Holy Land and an Italian American father from Brooklyn New York, Punish considers his nationality as the whole world. A a self-declared global citizen, Punish reaches out to all mankind for peace, harmony and justice declaring that he pledges allegiance to every human on the planet.
Educated at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and within the California State University system, Punish knew business well and spent his early adulthood chasing green checks and the “American Dream”. Feeling misled and empty, in the mid-90s, Punish checked out of the material world and into the realm of reason, enlightenment and humanity; he’s never looked back.
In the so-called third world, Punish chose to work with underprivileged communities where he currently lives donating his time with kids sports and other community activities that add value to the overall global tribe.
Married for over a quarter century with grown children and a grand son, Punish is no longer at war with the world but a family man who lives in peace on a dirt road with chickens. Through his music, writings, and community activities, Punish continues to fight for global justice, human dignity, and respect.
Solo since 2003.
