Hello World- Meet PJay!
Right in the middle of a conversation she may just break out in song and a sudden silence may cause her to giggle nervously. Her deep brown eyes sparkle making a serious conversation occasionally challenging. Your first conversation with her will be as organic as your most recent one with a friend of 20 years.
Her love of family (especially her late Father) will let you in just a bit, on her immediate circle from which she draws purpose, creativity and resolve. Her Vision as an artist is focused without being pushy, inclusive without discounted her own meaning, and lovingly instructive creating admirers and new friends along the way. She effortlessly makes others better!
But don’t underestimate the soulful actor, singer, and choreographer. The progeny of proud southern parents, yet California born and bred, she’s a remarkable combination of comfortable-in-her-own-skin talent. No Diva, no entourage, no pretentiousness. Just talent, hard work, sacrifice and a deep understanding of the commitment required for getting the job done. This is PJay!
