Alternate Assistant Director - Div 7
I was born in Fredericksburg, Va. I grew up with lots of personal experiences.
One of the old battle fields was pretty much my backyard and the area confederate hospital was very near our house, so it was always something “odd”. Some of it freaked me out while other parts were very comfortable.
My personal experiences shaped my life from a very early age. As a young person I found great comfort in horses and became an avid equestrian. Riding is communicating to your horse; both spoken & unspoken language. Communication is key. Over the years, I learned a lot of things from my animals and gained a better connection to nature & the universe.
In college I studied chemistry, biology, psychology & ecology; partly because I wanted better answers to “did that happen or am I crazy…” and partly because I really like science & technology.
After college the only jobs available were in technology field. Currently I am a network infrastructure engineer with 20 odd (very odd) years in the field.
My opinion of the paranormal/supernatural has evolved from a blend of my studies & personal experiences. Every experience has sent me to the library to explain, debunk or better connect with the experience. At the present, I have begun to see paranormal as unexplained nature. I continue to look for the connections between the physical world and the spiritual world thru science.
