Let me start by saying that I’m a funeral director. No, this doesn’t mean that I have a morbid curiosity of death and dying. Instead, I’d prefer to say that I help the living cope with the transition of the loss of their loved one and celebrate the significance of a life well lived. I would even venture so far as to say it’s a spiritual profession.
If you had told me when I was young that I’d one day become a mortician, I never would have believed you. However, I feel like it’s what I was meant to do, my calling in life. I have a strong religious background which is a comfort to know where I will be going when my time comes to leave this mortal existence. As a kid, I feared dying. Though I no longer fear death, I’ve still got a lot of living to do.
Growing up, I was always curious about the paranormal. You know…Bigfoot, UFO’s and such. I’ve always been a voracious reader and was willing to gobble up anything I could get my hands on pertaining to these subjects. Which brings me back to my profession: the last few years have certainly piqued my interest of what happens after our life here on earth. By coincidence, I was flipping through the T.V. channels and came across one of those “ghost hunting” shows. Before then, I had never even heard of an EVP or knew it was possible to measure spirit activity. The concept of using science and technology to investigate the unknown was fascinating. I’ve been hooked ever since.
These days, when I’m not helping WISPS on a ghost investigation, I enjoy reading and watching movies, fantasizing about my next Disneyland vacation and geeking out over Star Wars. I’m also an avid marathon runner, chess player and a snare drummer in a Scottish bagpipe band. I’ve been happily married since 2007 and have three amazing children.
