Bio I was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of a painter who worked at MGM Studios.  I have always loved history and loved the great mysteries of the past. That is what got me interested in the study of Archaeology.  The idea of digging in Egypt or North Africa was tingling to me.  But, I only got a chance to dig in California--still it was of thrilling to find something lost for centuries.  In 1978 I was part of a 'dig' at Mission San Antonio de Padua.  Late one night, while walking though the courtyard of the place, I chanced to see a monk with a candle.  When I approached him, he simply vanished into nothing.  I was shocked, stunned, and a bit frightened.  From that point on I have been involved with psychic research.  I have visited over 200 haunted houses, attended 93 Sťances, and yes, encountered 24 apparitions.  I am still trying to find answers.  I have authored six books on the subject of ghosts and local history and continue to consult on the subject of ghosts in Hollywood.  I have traveled all over the west in my search for the supernatural and I believe that I have found a few answers to this great riddle.
