Brian Miller is a native San Diegan. He has a strong technical background and is well versed in all things paranormal. He has been investigating paranormal activity since 1980, and his experience in a variety of fields provides a sound foundation for his investigative approach. These fields include security, photography, electronic music/commercial music recording, anthropology, psychology, salvage archaeology and computer sciences.

Karl Sherlock's background in logic, critical thinking and rhetoric, along with his amateur interest in science, puts his approach to paranormal investigating on the more skeptical or pragmatic side. His many personal experiences with the paranormal over the years have led him on the one hand to seek out rational explanations using the scientific method and, on the other hand, to explore philosophical and spiritual attitudes about these so-called mysteries. Karl is an Assistant Professor of English instructor at Grossmont College.

DEBRA PAGE

Case Management /  Investigator

This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Debra's interest in the paranormal began with unexplained early childhood experiences. Inspired by tales of "second sight" passed on through her Scottish ancestors, she wrote her first paper on extrasensory perception in grade school. Her lifetime search for answers had lead her to study Jungian psychology, parapsychology and the nature of mind.  She was a field investigator in UFO related phenomena in Berkeley in the early 1990's.  As a retail bookseller in the field of metaphysics, mysticism & world religions, she was exposed to many authors and teachers in these fields.  She studied with Purna Das Baul and the Bauls of Bengal, a gypsy minstrel lineage of Sufi/tantric/Vaishnavism pre-dating the 12th century.  Since 2004, she has been a student of Venerable Lama Gyatso Chodak Nubpa of the Tibetan Nyingma order. She completed two years of University level education in Psychology, and one year of classical painting instruction with Hiroshi Myazaki. Her profession as a corporate bookkeeper, as well as parenting two children, has helped her remain grounded and logical, as well as an experienced and compassionate case manager.
