I would describe my interest in Parapsychology was born out of a painting I once saw as a child, ‘The Infinite Search’ by Rene Magritte (1953). This painting which I found in an old Reader’s Digest book called ‘Mysteries of the Unexplained’ (1982) sparked my interest in the paranormal, and at the age of 8 years old it made me start, for the first time, to ask questions about the nature of the world around me and about a subject that would continue to intrigue me throughout my life.
This childhood intrigue was the driving force that fuelled me into academic study, taking on a Psychology BSc (Hons) degree with the Open University and Parapsychology MSc degree with Coventry University, while in full time employment.
I created ‘The Study of Paranormal Experiences And Research’ (Spear) website. Designed to try and raise public awareness of the field of Parapsychology and also provide information on paranormal phenomena and the community that researchers its.
I hold the role of Treasurer for the Greenwich Skeptics in the Pub Branch and have been recently accepted to study for a PhD in Parapsychology at Northampton University
