Filmmaker and Editor
“Pj worked for me on the feature film American Beauty, which I directed in 1999. In his capacity as Avid assistant, he helped me during a difficult transitional period between editors, and in that showed himself to be a gifted editor in his own right. His skill in Avid is very great indeed; he thinks fast, his artistic judgment is extremely fine and he is a positive presence in the cutting room. I would not hesitate to strongly recommend him as your editor, as he is a worthy candidate.”
SAM MENDES, DIRECTOR “AMERICAN BEAUTY”, “SKYFALL”

Co-ordinating the magicians
Managing VFX is a daunting subject and a big task, even for smaller films. It’s so complicated that films that can afford it will hire a separate VFX Editor just to keep track of the film’s VFX
The storyteller with a vision
Pj has rapidly proved himself to be a strong storyteller with a unique vision. His first short film as director, 'Dipper', was received to great acclaim, receiving ‘best of show’ at the Best Shorts film competition and winning Triggerstreet’s Online Film Festival.
