PJ has been dancing since age 10, discovering West Coast Swing in his late teens. In 2001 he went to his very first dance event/competition: Peach State in Atlanta, GA. PJ started traveling the Swing Circuit all over the nation competing in Jack and Jills and strictly competitions. In 2012, he was awarded the NASDE tour Champion. In 2015, PJ quit his job and commenced dancing professionally full time. Now PJ travels all over the world teaching, judging, performing, competing, and always learning!
