Tom is an outstanding photographer who has been operating his own business for over five years who also has a knack for telling the stories behind the pictures he takes. Although he has a wealth of paranormal pictures and videos to his credit, he is quick to point out how many thousands of shots he has taken to get these paranormal gems. He is a seasoned photographer, and photo analyst, who has a gift for "normal" photography as well. Tom is also a very talented musician as well with the release of two musical compilations under the band name of SHOCK SESSION™ and recently more under the name of Agent Dark™.

Tom has experienced paranormal activity since being a young child. He has always just figured such activity has been common place and something that people just get use to. He has witnessed everything from the mundane, to the demonic. "A picture is worth a thousand words" and "seeing is believing" are two statements that describe what Tom brings to PTF, and our clients. His value runs deeper than just as "the" paranormal photographer, his wealth of experience and his adherence to a strict set of standards also benefits both PTF and the clients we serve. His gifted ability to be at the right place at the right time for capturing paranormal evidence also benefits the entire paranormal community as well.

Tom was already a well seasoned paranormal investigator and photographer with another local paranormal investigative and research team, MISSOURI GHOST & HAUNTS™, before joining MISSOURI PARANORMAL RESEARCH™ in 2005. Tom then became a Vice President and a Co-Founder of PARANORMAL TASK FORCE™, Inc. Tom also serves as and assistant administrator of the MISSOURI PARANORMAL RESEARCH™ and the TASK FORCE ENTERTAINMENT & PRODUCTIONS™ Divisions.

Tom has been a featured guest on many radio stations across the US, UK, and Canada and has completed filming in 2007 with Keith Age and The Booth Brothers for "Children of the Grave" which was released October 2, 2007 on DVD and aired on the SciFi Network in 2008 and recently finished filming for another Booth Brothers (Spooked Television Releasing) production titled "The Possessed" which should be released on DVD in 2008 and air on the SciFi Network sometime after that. He also was filmed and featured in the Exspiro Productions documentary "The Other Side" which was released in 2007.

MISSOURI PARANORMAL RESEARCH™ was the proud recipient of the "Best Ghost Evidence of 2006" award presented at the 2007 Ghost World Conference in Gettysburg, PA due to Tom's Waverly Hills Sanatorium photographic capture of an entity!
