Q1. Why did you become a paranormal investigator?
Living and growing up in a haunted house most probably pushed me into the world of the paranormal. So much happened in that house that it changed the way I see the world around me today. I used to come home from work and place any coins and other odds and ends from my pockets on the kitchen counter before taking a bath. When I returned to colect them, all my stuff would be stacked up in neat piles on the counter. I could never understand how that was possible, as I would be alone in the house. I think these and many other events therefore set me on the path to becoming a paranormal investigtor and somehow try to understand what happened?
Q2. What do you do as a day job?
My day job is a shop manager.
Q3. Have you ever seen a ghost?
YES, At The Hell-Fire Caves I once saw 3 young boys just outside the entrance to the caves playing, and more recently I saw a young female apparition just minutes after Lead Investigator Steve Sweet saw the same ghost whilst investigating The Newlands Tea Shop in Bicester. I have also seen stange shadows and dark shapes on many of the investigations I have attended.
Q4. What special skills do you have that benefit the team?
I like to feel I can effectively organise and sort out investigations for the team. I am also full of energy and enthusiasm. My biggest strength is my ability to talk to anyone and communicate effectively.
Q5. If you won the lottery what would you spend the money on?
First of all I would make sure all my family and real friends were sorted out, then I would set about setting up GPS with some offices around the UK, letting Barri, Ian and myself staff theses locations full-time. I would then get lots of media interest in the team to get us back on the TV.
Q5. Where is the scariest place you have been to and why?
Those bloody 'Screaming Woods' on the Paranormal Live TV show.... I still can't understand why the beam-barriers went off! and what those red eyes were I saw in the trees.
Q6 What are your dreams and aspirations?
Making GPS the number one team in the world & having a number one hit TV show!
Q7. Tell us a secret that nobody knows?
Well.....I write childrens stories and poetry.
Q8. If you could meet anybody, living or dead who would it be and what would you say?
Alice Cooper and ask him to do a live TV investigation with me & the team.
Q9. What’s your favourite piece of ghost hunting equipment and why?
My trusted K2 Meter, I jjust love that piece of kit!
