At a very young age I had many paranormal experiences. As i got older and not quite so scared of these experiences i developed an interest in investigating the paranormal. In 2008 i created Spirit seekers which gave me the opportunity to explore the realms of the northeasts most haunted buildings. I have had great success and my favorite venues to date are The Castle Keep (Newcastle) and Chillingham Castle (Alnwick). The latest ghost hunting equipment can make a massive difference but i also love an old fashioned seaunce. I have seen, heard, felt and learned more than i could have imagined and i have met some fascinating people along the way.

It all started for me when I was told at a young age that someone within my family used to have a poltergeist with them when they were only a baby and stayed with them up until there teens, I was so intrigued by this and after taking to other family members and the one person in question who confirmed this for me my search for answers in the paranormal began. I have being on plenty of investigations now and I can say that me favourite place is Chillingham Castle, This because of the activity I have witnessed there along with the castle being a fantastic location in itself and just being there with all of its History gives me Goosebumps. My best peaces of equipment I like to use are the K2 and Spirit box as I have had great experiences with them personal ones too

Ever since I was a young boy I always believed in the paranormal despite never experiencing anything. During the summer of 2013 I started experiencing strange things at home and started to gather my own equipment together. I joined in to a spirit seekers investigation at cooks corner cafe in Hartlepool in November 2013 and couldnt have had a more active night for my first ever real paranormal investigation and I have been a part of the team ever since. During my 3 years as a paranormal investigator I have experienced everything from small taps and bangs to full bodied apparitions and it just gives me more questions than answers as to what happens after we leave this physical life. My favourite venue has to be Chillingham castle due to the level of activity I have had there and was has followed on from there. My favourite method of communication has got to be the psb7 spirit box or the ouija board as I have had some awesome experiences and information with both of these methods

I first became interested in paranormal investigations while traveling around Australia and visiting a haunted court and tar pits where British convicts were tried and if found guilty thrown in the tar pits. Not only did I hear noises experience a deep feeling of unhappiness but I witnessed a white mist falling into the tar pits. From here I was hooked. I then started attending the investigations with spirit seekers and found them extremely professional and excellent. I attended investigations throughout this year and started researching venues myself. Spirit seekers then offered me the chance to work for them and I snapped it up. My favorite venues are the north east aircraft museum and keilder castle where I have had the most activity and caught the best footage.

I have always been interested in the paranormal and watched the usual programmes we all watch. I got a lot more interested when I was 17 when I had my first experience I could not explain. I was on crutches as the time I went to sleep with the door open and TV on and than I woke up with the crutches up right on there own the TV off and the door closed with a black figure standing next to the bed. After this happened I started reading up on these things I could not explain and finding out more and more about the paranormal. I have being on a few Investigations in the past with Spirit Seekers and some of my favourites are Castle Keep Chillingham Castle and the North East Aircraft Museum. My favourite bit of equipment I use is the EVP recorder although I like using items like candles lights and balls to try something different and contact the other side.

Since I can remember I have always been interested in the Paranormal, Watching all the Main Paranormal TV shows like Most Haunted and Ghost Adventures has really made me want to do this as a hobby for real, I like to connect with the spirit world and to do this I started to gather more and more equipment together to help me achieve this, I have recently joined spirit seekers in September 2016 and look forward to what I can bring to the team and Guest. The venues I have liked so far are The Cleveland Ironstone Museum in Skinningrove and the Grand Hotel in Scarborough where I have had the most activity using glass work and hearing taps and bangs thought out the night. My favourite peace of equipment I like to use is the Ouija Board.

I started getting into the paranormal at around 16 years of age when I worked as a chef in a very old Georgian building in Wigan. I walked into the downstairs walk in freezer room and as soon as I stepped into the actual room, the large freezer door opened by itself right before me. There were many other incidents that I could not explain in the six years I was there, including voices and footsteps from empty pitch black function rooms that upon me investigating, nobody was in there. I joined spirit seekers after attending several investigations with them and found them to be very professional and genuine. My favourite venues are the North East aircraft museum and the Unicorn inn. The equipment I like best is the K2 , I seem to get great responses to direct questions using this method.

My first paranormal experience happened when I was around 3 years old, from then I have lived in several houses with some pretty interesting spirits. More recently I have shared a home with a poltergeist spirit who would disconnect electrical items, move kitchen equipment and push females down the stairs. These experiences fascinated me rather than terrified me, and I began researching and watching paranormal programs at around 10 years old. I love using equipment, particularly K2 meters/EMF detectors, trigger objects and the Spirit Boxes which are commonly seen on the television.

From a very young age I have always been fascinated with the paranormal. The house I grew up in was extremely active and I still remember the first time I seen a spirit in full, an old lady sitting on the end of my bed, which strangely did not scare me. Growing up I watched programmes like Most Haunted which eventually led to me and my now wife going on paranormal investigations. After not attending any investigations for a good few years due to life commitments, we decided it was time that we started to go back and do something that we both love. That is when we found Spirit Seekers. After the first investigation with Spirit Seekers it is safe to say that we were once again hooked. Luckily for me soon after Spirit Seekers were looking for new investigators to join the team, this was an opportunity I could not miss. I am now happy and proud to be a member of such a fantastic team. My favourite equipment to use is The Portal device which I handmade as it allows for intelligent replies from spirit in real time. My favourite location I have investigated so far is The Schooner Hotel, not only did everyone have personal experiences, we also documented evidence with the equipment we used.
