When PJ was five, he got his first toy drum kit. His interest in drumming steadily grew. At age eight, he decided to attend a Kiss concert. Little did he know this would be a pivotal event in his life. Upon seeing the show, he instantlywanted to become a rock star. This desire drove him to practice his craft incessantly in the years to follow.
PJ is a heavy hitter whose drumming is a means of channeling his passion and releasing his angst. His very physical performance style clearly demonstrates his command of the stage. He feeds off the energy of the audience and escapes into the music.
This self-taught drummer is influenced by John Bonham, Eric Singer, Tommy Aldridge, Tommy Lee, Alex Van Halen, and Randy Castillo.
He has drummed for Alkemy, The Inmates, Cathedral Burn, Vendetta, Teeze and now SIIN.
