Ted is a 34-year veteran paranormal investigator (with Genesee Valley Paranormal Investigators), researcher, radio host, and author. He is very passionate about the unknown and loves to lecture on the subject. His dedication and personal investment into the field has driven him to start writing to capture his techniques and what he believes.

Lectures and interviews on podcasts, radio, and events allow him to express his simple but no-nonsense theories about the paranormal.

He has been interviewed by Coast to Coast with George Noory.
Paratalkradio.com is his podcast heard every Monday at 8:00 pm Eastern time out of Ontario, New York. He is active in a New York Library lecture circuit September to November every year.
