I have been interested in ghosts and the paranormal since I was a kid growing up on my grandfathers Ohio farm out in the country wandering around exploring old barns and the woods behind my grandpa's house. Hearing old family ghost stories around camp fires, my mother is a fine story teller who grew up near the Hornet Spook Light in Missouri and spent many nights watching the mysterious light winking up and down it's dark country road. I heard tales of ghostly cars offering hitch hikers rides, phantom foot steps eternally circling old haunted graveyards and spectral ladies floating accross roads to be struck by cars late at night. These and many other stories kindled my interest in ghosts
Nowadays I am out trying to find out what is really out there. I was an independant investigator for several years and then I was brought on with Central Ohio Ghost Squad as a Paranormal Investigator/Case Manager from 2008 to Feb of 2011, when I made the transition to the United Paranormal Project. I have worked with other groups including Beth Santore from Grave Addiction and DaShane Watkins of Spiritual Hope and went to many different Places to Investigate such as the Mansfield Reformatory, Moundsville Prison, Twin City Opera House, Waverly Hills and the Anchorage Putnam Villa all of which are here on the site in our Galleries.
Over the last several years I have grown to love walking and photographing cemeteries for thier historical significance as well as their beauty and tranquility. There is alot of interesting symbolism and artistry carved into those tombstones and each cemetery has dozens of tales to tell us if you really look for them. I have this website to share the things I see as I walk the fields of the dead. I hope people enjoy looking thru my pictures and that they gain an apreciation for our cemeteries.
Lastly, I love exploring places, finding old forgotten places and capturing some of their essence in photographs before they are gone forever. Historical places and those with folklore associated with them or a haunting or two are my favorites to look for. I love the character of many of the older architectural styles as well and I try to show people with my pictures how much of worth is sitting rotting away here in Ohio.
These are my three main goals/ ambitions for this site I hope those of you who visit it come away with something of my love for these places and my interest in them as well as maybe a greater awareness of all the Lost and Found places in Ohio.
