My life-long interest in the paranormal began in the late 70s with the original Project Blue Book series that aired on Sunday night television. In 2003, I was introduced to The Mothman Prophecies movie, and it truly changed my life. Since then, I have read nearly all of John Keels research, as well as the works of similar authors including Gray Barker, Andrew Colvin, and Brent Raynes. Since 2016, my wife Jaci and I have visited Point Pleasant regularly, and we have become friends with several area residents, including the late Carolin Harris, co-founder of the Mothman Festival. Presently, I am completing my PhD in psychology, with a focus on post-traumatic growth. Additionally, Jaci and I are also in the preliminary stages of a phenomenological study that will examine the correlations between paranormal experiences and post-traumatic growth. We reside in Northern Illinois.
