I’ve been interested in paranormal mysteries since I was about 5 years old and saw the movie E.T.  I especially took an interest in the subject of UFOs and space travel, although I was afraid the topics were rather nerdy and I was embarrassed that my friends would find out I studied them.  My dad brought me books and newspaper clippings, but I would hide the UFO material when my friends came to visit.  I started my first ghost hunting excursions while I was in college and about that time I also became really interested in cryptozoology.  In being open-minded about various theories and phenomena, I always tell people, “Don’t believe everything you hear, but don’t disbelieve something just because you haven’t heard it before.”
