PJ was born and raised in Knoxville, TN, where he currently resides with his wife and daughters.   He loves Sweet Tea & Tennessee Football!  No matter what part of the world he is in, you’ll catch him wearing a hat, with the ” Big Orange Power T” supporting his TN Vols!!

PJ has been dancing since the age of 10. His initial start to dancing was in clogging, but only years later he started line dancing, country dancing, and then eventually discovered West Coast Swing. He quickly realized that WCS was a perfect match for his personality.  PJ enjoys traveling the world teaching workshops, competing, judging, choreographing, and coaching.

PJ fell in love with West Coast Swing on the social dance floor.  When his busy schedule allows, you’ll still find him there!  You will often hear PJ say that when he steps onto the dance floor, his goal is to make his follower smile.  It is clear that he has a very high success rate at achieving this goal!!!  Be sure to check out the calendar page to see which events PJ will be at!
