At a very young age I had many paranormal experiences. As i got older and not quite so scared of these experiences i developed an interest in investigating the paranormal. In 2008 i created Spirit seekers which gave me the opportunity to explore the realms of the northeasts most haunted buildings. I have had great success and my favorite venues to date are The Castle Keep (Newcastle) and Chillingham Castle (Alnwick). The latest ghost hunting equipment can make a massive difference but i also love an old fashioned seaunce. I have seen, heard, felt and learned more than i could have imagined and i have met some fascinating people along the way.

My interest in the paranormal started when I was about 10 years old after I was told a story by my dad of a child that had a poltergeist at there side from a very early age up until there teens. The story is to long to mention here but events included clothes being left out for the child to wear and fixed tiles flying off the wall when the child had being told off. Then when I found this story was about someone in our family I was intrigued and asked a lot of questions up until the point I had my own paranormal experience (lets just say I turned white) I had to do something to find answers, So here I am now thankful for the opportunity Spirit Seekers have given me to become a paranormal investigator and find the answers I am looking for. My favourite pieces of equipment I like to use are: digital camera (capturing Orbs) and the K2 meter (getting direct response). My two favourite places I have being to investigate are the Galleries of justice in Nottingham and the Schooner Hotel as these have being very active places when I was there.

I first became interested in paranormal investigations while traveling around Australia and visiting a haunted court and tar pits where British convicts were tried and if found guilty thrown in the tar pits. Not only did I hear noises experience a deep feeling of unhappiness but I witnessed a white mist falling into the tar pits. From here I was hooked. I then started attending the investigations with spirit seekers and found them extremely professional and excellent. I attended investigations throughout this year and started researching venues myself. Spirit seekers then offered me the chance to work for them and I snapped it up. My favorite venues are the north east aircraft museum and keilder castle where I have had the most activity and caught the best footage.

Ever since I was a young child I have always believed that there was a world in which we could not see unless we looked for it. I decided to become a Paranormal Investigator because like many others, I also seek validation that there is something after we leave this physical life. I went to a Spirit Seekers investigation as a customer and knew from the second I met the them I would love to become a part of it. I already owned a lot of my own paranormal equipment before I had my first paranormal investigation with them and had a lot of knowledge and experiences. My favourite piece of equipment is my P-SB7 Spirit box because of some of the direct responses I have had on command. My favourite investigation so far has to be the Clarendon Hotel in Redcar because of the footage of an unexplained hand hitting one of the customers in the back.

I have always been interested in the paranormal and watched the usual programmes we all watch. I got a lot more interested when I was 17 when I had my first experience I could not explain. I was on crutches as the time I went to sleep with the door open and TV on and than I woke up with the crutches up right on there own the TV off and the door closed with a black figure standing next to the bed. After this happened I started reading up on these things I could not explain and finding out more and more about the paranormal. I have being on a few Investigations in the past with Spirit Seekers and some of my favourites are Castle Keep Chillingham Castle and the North East Aircraft Museum. My favourite bit of equipment I use is the EVP recorder although I like using items like candles lights and balls to try something different and contact the other side.
