I've been interested in the paranormal since I was a small child. An avid reader, I would borrow the maximum of 10 books per fortnight from the library and read them all. One of my earliest memories relating to this is a book from the children's section which gave a colourful account of the Great Amherst Mystery, an alleged poltergeist episode which occurred in Canada in 1878. This sparked my interest, and soon I was learning about the Enfield poltergeist hauntings from around 13 years earlier. I must have been no more than 9 years old before these stories gripped my curiosity.
My twenties and early thirties enabled me to enjoy a brief and humble career as a semi-pro musician. I became involved in the paranormal field in 2015 and gained my first hands-on experience as an investigator with the prominent and well-regarded team UK Ghost Hunters. My role quickly expanded to Head of Recruitment, Treasurer and Board Member. My time in the team taught me much about the brain's predilection tendencies, pareidolia and the need for thorough investigation. It also revealed many things - physical and audible - that I could simply not explain.
I'm currently studying Biological and Developmental Psychology with Monash University and Philosophy with the OU. In late 2019 I will be studying Parapsychology under Professor Caroline Watt at the Koesler Parapsychology Unit at Edinburgh University. I am also currently working towards becoming an Approved ASSAP Investigator on the National Register of Professional Investigators (NRPI).
I'm a member of the Parapsychological Association, the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) and the Association for Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena (ASSAP). I'm also a member of the International Alliance of Holistic Therapists.
