Hello Miranda and thanks for writing, my answers are below!

1.) I have 15 years of Experience in Investigating the Paranormal with Combined Field Research and Study.

2.)The one experience that still shakes me to the core, is a House in North Central NJ, I was sitting in front of a fire place at the house, it was built in the mid 1600s. While sitting there filming in night vision, I was overcome with a severe cold feeling and an overwhelming feeling of sorrow, it almost brought me to tears. I felt like getting up and getting out of there, but I stayed, it was as if I was feeling possibly what the spirit had felt. Come to find out a few days later, a British soldier had died in that very spot during the revolutionary war, They say three soldiers were shot outside of the home during an ambush, two were dead , but one was still alive, so the folks that lived there brought the soldier in and had had died right in front of that fire place, I did not know this until days after the investigation!

3.)I feel spirits each have their very own reason for staying around. I think some are so attached to their home, they do not want to leave, I feel others still have unfinished business, this is all theory though!

4.)This is conducted typically by a Catholic priest, they do this to cast out a supposed "demon' that has over taken a human body!

5.)I am unsure of this as these things are kept private.

6.)I must tell you, I do not believe in these "demons". In all the years I have been researching, I have not yet come across one of these demons, I have come across Negative spirits, but No Demon.

7.) Refer to answer #6

8.)I do not charge any money for an investigation. I do all investigations for free, although we do like when we are provided with Coffee!

9.)Refer to question #6 - I think a negative spirit can manipulate ones mind and spirit, But could never enter ones body!

10.)You can visit my web site There is a wealth of information there as well as my personal contact info if you need it.

I can answer most question pertaining to the study and research of the paranormal. I am not just limited to questions about ghosts, but I am willing to answer questions about any strange and unexplained happening. The question I would try to stay away from answering would be that of religion and or politics. Neither of which I would like to argue about in a public forum type setting.
