Growing up in Toronto Canada, PJ had musical aspirations at a very young age. He was only 12 when he formed his first rock band and started getting his vocal training at the age of 15. Upon working with some of the greatest teachers that the industry had to offer, PJ was accepted into the Musicians Institute (MI) in Hollywood California in 2003.
It was there that he came to own his craft as a singer and learned all the ins and outs of the music industry, music theory, performance, songwriting and composing. Upon his graduation, PJ was offered a teaching position at MI and became one of the youngest teachers to be teaching at the Institute.
From 2003 to 2005 PJ worked as a host for a music show at a Los Angeles Persian Television Channel "ITN" and was featured in various commercials and music videos.
PJ went on to form his existing band, Man the Destroyer, in 2005 in Hollywood and moved it to Toronto the same year. Man, the Destroyer, has come a long way from being a garage band to performing across Canada and the US with some of the biggest stars in the industry, including Blaze Bayley, former singer of Iron Maiden in 2011.
Since 2013 PJ has dedicated his time to training and coaching aspiring singers of all ages by combining the knowledge gained from his music education and vocal performance, along with years of touring the North American live music scene and multiple award-winning recording projects.

“Helping artist and singers develop their style and technique and seeing them perform with confidence and skill is the most enjoyable thing for me next to performing on stage myself”.
