Wayne Johnson's Bio

As the winner of the Today Show's "Domestic Diva" contest and now a contributor for NBC5 Chicago, Wayne Johnson has amassed quite a few skills.

His weekly “Wayne’s Weekend” segments on NBC 5 explore everything from cooking and party planning, to home decorating, crafts, new things happening in the city and more. He defines himself as a special event jockey, habitat craftsman, metro chef and urban explorer.

With a degree in Advertising and Communications from The University of Texas at Austin (and still a big Longhorn fan), Wayne spent 20 years wearing many hats at the Leo Burnett Advertising agency in Chicago.

For the last ten years, Wayne has owned and continues to operate his own graphic design and web design business. When he can find time, he also designs and builds furniture.

Wayne is single and lives in Chicago's Uptown community.
