Brandon Alvis has always had interests and questions about the paranormal after tragically losing two family members. Starting with a few friends using standard tools and procedures, he realized the many mistakes "commonly found" when investigating the paranormal. This motivated him to propagate a team specializing in many fields. To develop new methods not only reliable but convincing, introducing the "scientific approach" and naming this team: "American Paranormal Research Association" aka A.P.R.A. His hard work, dedication and passion to this science is greatly respected, often allowing A.P.R.A. to investigate in areas normally closed-off to others. Pioneering fundraisers and special events, he along with his team, provide participants an insight into the paranormal wherein proceeds go to the preservation of the historical structure. His determination to find "cold hard facts, to prove or disprove" makes A.P.R.A. what it is today.
Michael Rudie's interest in the paranormal began at a very young age. At around five years old he had his first paranormal experience in his family's old two story house. He awoke to a full body apparition standingoutside his room floating above the stairs. In high-school he met Brandon Alvis, among their common interests was that of the paranormal. Michael has been investigating with the APRA since October of 2009. He looks forward to a long and successful career of investigating with A.P.R.A.
