Elected with strong bipartisan support in 2018, Senator Nathan Johnson represents the economically and demographically diverse Senate District 16, which comprises the northern part of Dallas County.

After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Arizona with a degree in physics, Johnson earned his law degree from the University of Texas at Austin. His background in science and the law, together with his extensive community service, inform his political approach: rational, pragmatic, and productive. Like business and civic leaders throughout Texas, Senator Johnson recognizes that great benefits follow from policies that foster economic expansion and broaden opportunity and from fiscally responsible investment in public education, health, and infrastructure.

Johnson practices law at Thompson & Knight as Counsel in the Trial Practice Group in Dallas. He has also composed music for the classical concert stage and scored the hit television series Dragon Ball Z.

Senator Johnson and his wife, Anne, have made Dallas their home for more than 25 years, where they raise their three children—Finn, Theo, and Sophie. His wife, Anne, also an attorney, chaired the board of Family Gateway, where the Johnson kids join in providing assistance to homeless families.
