Sometimes found in a radio studio, and always found with a torch in my hand. My love of the paranormal comes from memories of playing with my 'Ghostbusters' proton pack toy as a kid, and being terrified by BBC's infamous 'Ghostwatch'. Have my finger in a few pies, most recently writing about ghosts for a herritage trust.

Now I'm hoping to get my hands dirty and hunt some spooks for myself, mainly at organised ghost hunting events across the UK. I'm also going to be covering weird news and urban exploration features.
