Brian- Assistant Director, Investigator, Researcher, Case Manager

Brian Daffern was born and raised in San Diego, CA and moved to Georgia with his wife Karen and their four daughters several years ago. Brian is a business professional, a writer, a former Marine, and holds technology and business degrees from two colleges. His passion lies in Paranormal investigation and is an experienced Paranormal Investigator and MUFON Field Investigator. When people experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. His great driver is to help explain and relieve the pain of people who have been through a traumatic/stressful paranormal experience.

Brian’s interest in the unknown started when he was young. The house at the end of his street was known for being haunted and very early on he tried to explain what was being seen and heard. Even though he never found the answers, he has spent his life trying to understand what more is out there and how to relate it to our lives. Throughout the years, he has experienced several unusual events including voices, electronic failures, voices, apparitions, and unexplainable movement of objects.

Brian is at heart a skeptic. He searches for data to support the experience. He knows that no single approach is the right one for every situation and continues to look for new ways to explain the unknown with technology to better understand the phenomenon.
He does believe there are things out there that defy explanation. When you have eliminated the possible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
