Greetings everyone: I am a Bay Area native and have been a lifelong, passionate San Francisco 49ers fan for the last four decades. I became a fan by watching the many heroics of Hall of Fame stars such as Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, and the best owner in sports, Eddie D. a.k.a. “Mr. D.” I come from a family of journalists, media personalities, athletes, coaches, sports enthusiasts, and writers. I have a strong passion for what I do and to help others achieve their goals while (we) strive for the top of the mountain by maximizing all of our potentials. I have a Doctor’s degree in “Niner Game.” Some of my work has been featured on the FanSided network, Bleacher Report: “Why Torrey Smith Should Be the No. 1 Wide Receiver” (Prior to the 2016 season).

P.S. I also have a background in studying analytical behavior patterns in people. (Yes, I’m different… lol.) Recently featured article: 2018 NFL Draft: Taking a Closer Look at Linebacker Roquan Smith

Hello, fellow 49ers fans, my name is Irvin Johnson, a staff writer at I’m 35 years of age and currently reside in the Washington, D.C. area. I was born in London, England, and migrated to the U.S. in the late 80’s where Washington D.C. became my home.  Since coming here, I developed a deep love and have been a loyal fan and follower of the San Francisco 49ers. Before joining Niners Live, I had done very little in the way of journalism and writing; however, since joining on with Niners Live last year, I have developed a true passion for the craft and truly enjoy what I do. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds and where this opportunity will lead me, as well as meeting some real people in the process. And, as always, goooooo 49ers!!!!!!!!
