Pat Jones a.k.a. P.J. Edghill
EXPERIENCE: I've been blessed with some incredible teachers and mentors in TV and marketing. Not only did they throw me into the fire of production and the television business, but I learned how to seamlessly put a brand and their message into a show. I produced several non-fiction/reality documentary programs which have appeared on such channels as: IFC, Spike TV, Oxygen and LOGO. I learned my strengths are in being a strong storyteller, while keeping a budget on track and keeping clients happy. Additionally, I continued my work with brands and gained extensive experience in organically communicating a brand story in the television medium.
