Co Founder/Lead Investigator
Jeff Banks 

      Jeff has always been intrigued by ghosts and the possibility of another world ever since he was a child. This interest has recently peaked with information on the internet and various famous television programs. He believes the many phenomena which occur in this field are not by coincidence.  He tends to be very skeptical when it comes to any evidence which is collected that has not been thoroughly disproved by various other methods or techniques before actually being called paranormal.

       His desire is to learn more about the field especially from a scientific and religious standpoint.  Secondly, with the knowledge gained be able to help others understand and deal with these paranormal occurrences, more specifically helping them regain a normal life. Lastly, he would like to provide the knowledge he currently has with electronics and share this with others who are willing to learn, as well as, learn from experts within the filed on various pieces of equipment.

      Jeff retired from the Navy after 20 years of service.  He has extensive  experience in electronics specifically submarine communications.  He holds a Bachelors degree in Workforce Education and Training. Currently, he works as a contractor for the U.S. Navy providing integrated logistical support for Ohio Class submarines.
