About



For the past eighteen years I have been on a journey, crawling in the dark and searching for truth.  From SCARED! to Haunted Collector and beyond, I've documented my adventures, allowing all to share in that journey.  My motto has always been, "Never Stop Searching" and it has taken me to some incredible places where I've made indelible memories.  I've found myself on TV and featured in documentaries.  Maybe you've seen me recently on Paranormal Caught On Camera or The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down.  I've written things that have been published, cranked out content in all mediums and taken part in some pretty amazing events.  While I've enjoyed the various aspects of my travels, my main focus has always been on education: learning all I can and passing it on to other investigators. My paranormal journey up until this point has been fraught with potholes, wrong turns and roadblocks which I assumed was just the way things were supposed to be. I've discovered this is not so.

 "If others can learn from my mistakes as well as my successes, then perhaps we can all advance a little quicker."

There's still a lot of work to be done and I've decided I want you all involved!




So what's next?  There are several projects on the board and I think they are all worthy of being finished.  For starters, I'll be continuing the Haunted Collector update series, digging into the old video archives, bringing my Paralosophy™ lectures to conventions as well as holding some of my own private events.  At a local expo in 2018 I unveiled my History of the Paranormal Exhibit, which I have been wanting to establish for years and that I am now looking to expand and grow.  After a second successful year of presenting it, I've been contacted by several who wish me to take it on the road.  This means you may be seeing it sooner than later at a venue near you.  To be perfectly clear, while there are other museums out there (all doing great work and by good people), mine is NOT about showing haunted items or creepy things.  Remember how I said I was all about education?  I want everyone who walks through my exhibit to emerge with some more knowledge about the foundations of this fascinating topic we all enjoy.

Actually, the museum is a physical representation of another project that I intend to complete: The Paranormal Compendium.  It is a documentary series by investigators, for investigators, a desk reference set, if you will, that I hope will become a valued piece of basic training for all involved in The Work.  With all of you aboard, I know it'll happen.







Collaboration is the key and you can get involved by becoming a patron!  You want more content, I want to provide it.  Many of you on #TeamBrian have been asking me for years how you can assist - well, here we are.

My goals will evolve as we finish projects and hit milestones, based on your Tier level so will your rewards!  We have some pretty cool perks to get us started:

  • Access to the Patron-only feed
  • A bi-weekly video broadcast, "Tuesday Night Bri"
  • Priority access to events
  • Access to archival material; featuring previously unseen clips
  • Your name will be featured in the credits of future releases/exhibits you help fund

The last tier is special and has been something I've dipped my toe in from time to time over the years.  I'm calling it the APPRENTICE Tier.  I've learned from some pretty incredible people and have had some remarkable experiences myself.  This is where I pass on that knowledge.  Only a few of these spots are available.

Patrons at this level will have tailored classes designed to make them better, more well-rounded investigators.  The material will focus on field work, methods and philosophy as well as paranormal history.  From there you will be able to choose topics you are interested in delving deeper into.  Any books I put on your reading list will be provided and sent to you.  Included in the syllabus will be an hour of Skype time per month, where I am available to go over your progress in the field, answer questions related to your coursework and decide on the next steps.

"Brian is very knowledgeable and professional. He brings a lot to the paranormal field and manages to keep me grounded when my imagination runs wild. He is a joy to work with and it has been an honor to learn from him. If you get the chance to be his apprentice, I highly recommend you take the opportunity."  ~K. Colburn



August 2020 saw the announcement of another great perk!  September 10th - 12th of 2021 I'll be holding a Paranormal Retreat at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Linesville, PA!  It'll be a weekend of paranormal workshops, community, and fun.  I'm holding it as a thank you to my loyal patrons. How does it work?

  • Sign up and be a patron of WANDERER level or higher for twelve consecutive months.
  • Be a patron in September of 2021.
  • The event is FREE TO ATTEND! All you have to do is get there.
  • Your room in the hotel is also covered (up to capacity of the hotel).
  • Tickets CANNOT be bought for this, and it is only open to Patrons who meet the first two conditions.

There is a lot to see and a lot in the works!  Check out the Tiers on the right and see what fits best for you.  You can start small and upgrade at any time!




My analogy of understanding the paranormal has always been that it is a road.  We all travel it at our own speeds, in our own directions, but eventually we'll all arrive at the answers.  I look forward to traversing this road together.  Thank you for your continued support of me and my work.  Never stop searching!

"BY INVESTIGATORS FOR INVESTIGATORS"

This one is super important to me - and it's been a source of anxiety for the past few years since I have yet to finish it. In 2013, after Haunted Collector wrapped, I began shooting interviews with paranormal figures for what I was calling, "The Paranormal Compendium". The trailer is on the page here and it was meant to be a four volume video series detailing different parts of the Work. Think of it as a Cosmos for the paranormal. I've got some great interviews in the can as well as a few different ways it can be assembled. In order to bring it to fruition in the way that I envisioned it, it will take a bit more than intention (and yes, I am putting it out to the Universe that I intend to get this finished! lol). Whereas Goal #2 is targeting short, five minute videos, this one is more substantial and will be used to deliver an ambitious and proper series of documentaries.

It will get done. Oh yes, it will get done! When this goal is reached all Patrons will be included in the credits!
