He approaches the paranormal from an objective and subjective viewpoint and feels that together they provide a greater understanding of the unknown. He has been aggressively seeking the answers to life's mysteries that have plagued mankind since the dawn of time. Wondering from an early age: what happens to us after we die, what are the origins of Bigfoot, The Loch ness Monster and Moth Man and where do they fit in our animal kingdom and do we have ancestry among the stars? What were the guiding influences behind the Egyptian, Inca and Mayan cultures? There are so many questions that beg to be explained and answers to be understood. This is but a small part of the driving force that fuels his enthusiasm for the study of the unexplained.He is the digital imaging and video specialist for the L.E.M.U.R. (the League of Energy Materialization and Unexplained phenomena Research) Team ( based out of Asheville while covering the whole South East. He's been able to capture phenomenal digital images with his digital cameras and outstanding video footage using near-Infra-Red/Night-Shot camcorder technology. Some of these images and video have been sought after by such publications as "Fortean Times," and TV media such as Discovery, History, Travel Channels and local news.
