I appreciate you for teaching me so much. I really enjoyed your class and hope you can teach me next year. You’re really funny and I love your projects!  – Nikki, 10

You have given Inara a chance to learn about herself. She loves going [to the museum] and was so happy this summer. Inara hasn't stopped drawing; she keeps going over old work and making big changes to the prior drawings. It was more than just an art program for her. She is looking forward to coming again next summer. – Summer Youth Arts Participant Parent

PJ was fantastic with my students! He was able to manage behaviors and discussions perfectly and they were so engaged. So impressed! See you next Spring! – Francesca, Teacher PS 89, Queens, NY

PJ was the first curator I worked with for a group show during the summer of 2014.  PJ made me feel safe and comfortable from the first day we met.  He is an honest and genuine person with an amazing heart.  It's so great when you work with people who truly believe in you.  I cannot wait to work with him again. – King Texas, Visual Artist

PJ never ceases to amaze—as an educator, curator, community advocate, and all around jack-of-all-trades. The sincerity and energy with which he employs his arsenal of skills is truly special. – Kimberly Drew, Founder, Black Contemporary Art

I am always impressed by PJ's close attention to breaking down dominant cultural narratives; he is an educator who carefully considers voices that are not often heard in the mainstream and who is always sensitive to complex identities. In gallery discussions, PJ always allows space for multiple viewpoints, and I admire his ability to connect program content with the lived experiences of his students. He is a pleasure to work with professionally, and I enjoy learning from and collaborating with him! – Deena Bak, Former Family Programs Coordinator, Brooklyn Museum

PJ's kind and generous spirit is consistently reflected in his work. From witnessing him grow as an intern educator at the Brooklyn Museum; to curating multiple shows around New York City, I am clear that he is a positive contribution to community. He is always on trend and connected to everything cool and progressive. I am proud to call him a colleague and friend. – Alicia L. Boone Jean-Noel, Associate Curator of Public Programs and Community Partnerships, Brooklyn Museum

PJ has been an inspiration to watch. As an educator, a mentor and a creative, he is always pushing boundaries and questioning motives. I can’t wait to see what he brings us next! – Jennifer Ifil-Ryan, Deputy Director and Director of Creative Engagement, Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling

PJ's infectious energy and flawless execution on events and exhibits has made him my go to, for all things related to museums, arts and social justice in NYC. PJ is a connector with a global perspective, cultural awareness and creative community engagement strategies that have put Museum Hue on the map! He is an asset to any organization, personable, free thinking and down to earth, making him a joy to work with. – Monica O. Montgomery, Co Founder and Strategic Director, Museum Hue
