I have had an interest in the paranormal since I was a young child. Although I have never had a personal experience, I believe that there are too many reports to ignore them. However, I don't see a ghost around every corner and would characterize myself as skeptically optimistic. I am a trained scientist (BA Biology, MS in Epidemiology and Cell Biology,) and I am employed as a scientist as well. I use my scientific training to try to run PIM's investigations as much like a controlled experiment as possible. I postulate that whatever can't be debunked may be real evidence of the paranormal, but careful measurements and observations need to be taken to ensure the validity of any evidence captured.

I have lived in Wisconsin my entire life. I am very big into sports and have been playing football since 5th grade until recently. Since then, the world of the unknown has become the new interest in my life. I have had a few experiences with the paranormal, most of them an inconvenience to say the least. I now want to go to the paranormal instead of the paranormal coming to me and hopefully shed some light on this timeless mystery. I am excited to start this quest for answers with my extended family, PIM.

Only recently has the paranormal world become an interest of mine. Having never had a self-acknowledged paranormal experience, I have been condemned to be only a skeptic. Common sense being my greatest defense against the paranormal, I vow to remain open-minded to the possibilities while, at the same time, approaching every situation with a scientific method. After all is said and done and there is no scientific explanation, only then will I begin to believe in the paranormal. I look forward to providing entertainment, knowledge, and my skills to P.I.M. With extensive time spent behind both video and still photography, I plan to utilize these skills, when possible, in every investigation. The senses are powerful tools but if it isn't documented properly, it might as well not have happened. My goal is to document it and prove myself and my beliefs wrong. Being afraid of the dark is not an option for me but will be for anything that might be out there.

I have been interested in the paranormal for as long as I can remember. I am very excited to be part of PIM. Although at this point I'm not taking part in investigations, I am assigned to the super nerdy task of tracking space weather and environmental conditions during investigations.
This assignment suits me just fine as this is my main interest when it comes to paranormal research. I am confident that by mapping what goes on at the time phenomena occur, we will one day be able to identify which conditions are conducive to perceiving paranormal phenomena.
My background is in anthropology, and I do approach paranormal investigation from an anthropological standpoint. Because of this, I am not a fan of the term "paranormal" when it is used with respect to investigating the possible presence of the energy of a deceased human. I feel that to refer to the study of the dead as "paranormal," is to imply that death and what comes after is beyond the scope of normal human experience. As death is one of the few things that every single human experiences without exception, I cannot think of anything that could possibly be seen as more normal.
I cannot wait to see how this field of research develops in years to come, and I am happy to have a group of like-minded individuals with whom to share this journey.

I have been captivated by the paranormal and the unexplained for most of my life. Experiencing extremely bizarre activity as a child, I grew up in what could be termed a haunted house. Despite my initial fright, my terror eventually gave way to curiosity and finally fascination. From fourth grade through college, I read everything I could get my hands on in search of an explanation for the paranormal. Finding nothing but stories and untested theories, I turned to the newly popular TV shows that promised to deliver proof, some through a "scientific" approach. I soon found that these shows only proved that they had little to no understanding of the scientific method let alone the paranormal. It was at this point that I began searching for a group that, like me, would endeavor to collect evidence and conduct tests of the phenomena surrounding hauntings in order to find answers that could be authenticated.
I am very excited to have found PIM and to be part of a group that uses experimentation and data collection to find explanations for the paranormal. As a Horticulturalist, my education and training are based heavily in science, and I hope to employ this background as an investigator with PIM. In an effort to remain unbiased, I try to approach every investigation as neither a skeptic nor a believer. I strive to remain ever objective, to test and retest until a theory can be offered. My hope is that one day the work of PIM and groups that utilize similar methods will help yield scientific theories so that we will finally be able to explain the paranormal as something that is rare but normal.
