Over the last 10 years, I have been involved in a number of paranormal television shows - both on-screen as a paranormal investigator, and behind the scenes assisting with the research, planning and production.

Ghost Chasers

INSIGHT / REALLY / T+E - Filmed 2016. Aired 2016 to Present.

In this 10 x 1hr episode series, myself and Chris Howley are the on-screen paranormal investigators, working alongside leading psychic medium Ian Lawman to take presenter Kay Nambiar on a journey of discovery. Kay had never investigated the paranormal before, but wanted answers. Throughout the series we take him to 20 of Europe's most haunted locations (2 per episode), searching for evidence of paranormal activity and presenting an argument for and against the existence of ghosts. Chris and I also assisted the production team behind the scenes with the location research and planning of the paranormal investigations.
