KURT MAYNE, contactee, was born and raised in Oakland, California. He encountered the paranormal side of reality at a very early age. On a family vacation to the small town of Guerneville, California he met face to face with an ET like being. This was the first of many ET encounters in his life. Since then Kurt has had countless encounters with the paranormal and the spirit world. These by far outnumber his ET encounters. He has met a range of beings that appear to him to include both angels and demons. Kurt has appeared on several television shows, among them the Fox series "Sightings", and the NBC prime time special "Confirmation", He also appeared on a British TV show, and another Fox special, both of which aired without Kurt ever being informed of the show title or date of airing! He had the pleasure of being a guest on KNBR radio in San Francisco and has been interviewed online on the Jerry Pippin show. Kurt also contributed a chapter to Dr. Richard Boylan's book, "Close ET Encounters", and has been featured in an article in UFO magazine. He has been a guest speaker at exopolitical conferences in San Francisco and Nevada. Unlike others who claim to know the motives of their abductors, Kurt does not. He has questions, concerns and experiences that he shares and ponders over. Kurt shares many of his experiences at his blog site, www.kurtmayne.wordpress.com/.
