Claim to Fame

The face of a popular "Ghost Hunting" program on the Unexplained Channel.


  • Born and grew up in Amesbury.
  • Due to proximity to Stonehenge, he became fascinated by it and its supposed link to Arthurian legends, druidic rituals, and neopaganism, and would often spend days out there trying to get more of a sense of the place.
  • Also grew up developing a love for the Sherlock Holmes novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Became obsessed with Doyle's work with spiritualism in his later years, trying to determine if the man truly believed in the veracity of things he experienced. Through this he learned about Harry Houdini and his work with the opposite side of the coin — debunking the con-artists.
  • Taught himself about EMF detection, IR Themometers, night vision technology and set out to debunk a few local "ghost" stories in the area. These would be recorded and posted to a blog, which would later gain in popularity and exposure thanks to the development of YouTube.
  • Became the face of "Ghost Hunting" on the the Unexplained Channel two years ago, leading teams of both spiritualists and avid debunkers to supposed haunted areas for the program.

Character Details

  • Has an obsession with the possibility that there actually is something in "the beyond", but at the same time has a need to unearth the frauds, the phony stories, and the trickery that can generally be accompanied by so-called spiritualists.
  • A fairly good-natured individual, always willing to crack a joke to ease tensions — though sometimes puts his foot right in it by doing so.
  • Enjoys the research, and a good ghost story.
