Harvey Althaus

SuperUser Account 0 397 Article rating: 5.0
Harvey has been chasing the paranormal for most of his life, or rather, it has been chasing him! At a very young age, maybe 3, he was aware of things no one else in his family could understand and most of the time they gave him the "LOOK" and was told to, "Knock it off" Well you can probably guess that didn't help. So here he is today!

Matt Goldman

SuperUser Account 0 405 Article rating: 5.0
Having lived in a haunted home in early childhood, Matt Goldman has always had an appreciation for the extraordinary. He has spent his life investigating the spiritual and supernatural. Wandering into old dwellings and haunted locations, walking miles drumming with Buddhist monks, meditating, and recording dreams, he has sat in Native American sweat ceremonies, fasted, and gone to great lengths to have first-hand experiences. Surprisingly, because of his experience, he has a healthy skeptical side. Not everything you think is true, so repeat verification and analysis is imperative to any conclusion in this area. His experience in this field, his skepticism, and his desire to uncover the mysteries that surround us are indispensable assets to APRA. He brings genuine curiosity, humor, and passion into a living science. The pursuit and discovery of the dark and undiscovered.
