by | Mar 29, 2022 | Interviews with Leaders | 0 comments

“I don’t believe in sacrifice, I believe in a willing exchange of what you may want for what you definitely want more.”


P.J. is an International Speaker and Success Strategist—who focuses on results! Despite his disability, which was expected to take his life by 7, he chose to live, and live well! P.J. truly lives an extraordinary life: sailing, outdoor skydiving, indoor skydiving, trapezing, ziplining, hiking, mountain climbing, snow skiing, water skiing, aqua jetpacking, and the list goes on! He’s a former wheelchair athlete, international traveler, amateur watercolorist, founder of two non-profit organizations and four disabled sports programs, a published author, 10th degree black belt, martial arts and women’s self-defense instructor, and a meditation teacher.

Additionally, P.J. has been inducted into the National Hall of Fame for People with Disabilities, awarded the distinguished Gold Dragon Medal from the Bujinkan International Dojo, recognized with the extremely rare Communication and Leadership Award from Toastmasters International, and was nominated to carry the Olympic Torch through Tucson in 2002.
