Hi, my name is Earl and I am the lead investigator and founder of Paranormal Investigations Nova Scotia. From a very early age I have been obsessed with ghost stories and all of the different tales of folklore in Nova Scotia. When I was a teen I worked at a haunted location, and when I was in my early twenties I was stationed at a haunted military base. In 2007 I decided to start the Facebook group Haunted Nova Scotia to see if I could collect different ghost stories from people in the province. The popularity of the group exploded, and through the sheer number of messages and e-mails I decided to start a paranormal investigation group with several of the people who were sending me all of their experiences. Since then I have investigated dozens of residential locations as well as incredible locations like the Five Fishermen restaurant in Halifax and the Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton.
When I'm not investigating, I attend classes at NSCC Waterfront in Radio, Television and Broadcast Journalism arts.
Hi, my names Darcy and I have been with Paranormal Investigations Nova Scotia from the very beginning. On investigations I do a little but of everything but specialize in thermal imaging and operating thermal cameras. I've investigated countless areas around the province with the group and have also been present at all of our public events and fund raising efforts. I work as a butcher by trade when I am not investigating, as well as security at a local pub on the weekends.
Hi, my name is Stephanie and I have been an investigator with P.I.N.S. from the forming of the group in August of 2013. I've been fascinated with the paranormal for as long as I can remember, and I spend a great deal of my time researching different religions and aspects of spirituality. When I'm not involved with the paranormal I work as a CCA at a local nursing home. I prefer residential investigations, but I have been on most of the large investigations that the group has conducted.. On investigations I am usually operating the EVP and ITC equipment.
Hi, my name is Warren and I joined the P.I.N.S. team in early 2016 after chatting with Earl throughout 2015. My interest in matters of the paranormal stems from a lifelong series of events that I have personally experienced.
My background, and extensive experience in electronics, music, video/audio editing, and communications work in harmony with my experiences and sensitivities to fuel my enthusiasm and interest in the pursuit of deeper evidence of the paranormal. I has extensive investigation experiences at many locations around Nova Scotia.
When I am not investigating, I work as a film/television music composer, music teacher and live performer with POGEY and the Myles Goodwyn Band. My other hobbies include building electronic devices and musical instruments and practicing hapkido, a martial art in which I currently hold a 3rd Degree Black Belt. Since joining the group I have investigated locations in East Hants as well as at the fortress of Louisbourg.
Hi, my name is Rhonda and I joined P.I.N.S. in June of 2016. After watching many paranormal themed television shows, I became inspired to begin investigating as many locations in Nova Scotia as I could get access to. A lifelong series of personal unexplained events give me the drive, and the incentive to search for answers. I bring extensive investigation experience and equipment knowledge to the team. When I am not researching and investigating the paranormal, I enjoy spending time gardening. Since joining P.I.N.S. I have investigated at the fortress of Louisbourg.
Hey, my name is Laura Rogers. My first 8 years were spent living in a house that is still well known in the community for being haunted. As I got older, I heard the stories of the various types of paranormal activity that occurred there. This started a mild interest in ghosts for me. This all changed when I was 17 and visiting home while on break from college. I was laying in bed reading one night, turned over, and there stood a woman with long brown hair, in a light colored dress. My very first full-bodied apparition! And, so began my fascination with the paranormal. This fascination turned to mild obsession when I purchased a house in Sackville NB not knowing that it also had strange things going on. There I would see shadow figures, be touched multiple times by unseen fingers, and unfortunately have my one, and thankfully only encounter with hatman. However, this only fueled my need to research and investigate the paranormal. Soon after, I discovered the Haunted Nova Scotia site as began going to public events with Earl and his team. Now I cannot get enough of the paranormal. Each May, Mom and I search out Inns and Hotels that have supposed paranormal activity and do investigations of our own. I have joined PINS in hopes of learning more about the paranormal and investigation techniques and to be a part of a team of people that share my fascination!
Hi, my name is Tracy, and I have been a member of Paranormal Investigations Nova Scotia for two years now. I met the rest of the team when I was attending one of their overnight events at the fortress of Louisbourg with my oldest son. I have always been fascinated with the paranormal and learning more about spirituality, and I had a couple of things happen that night that neither myself or my son could explain. In the morning before leaving the fortress I met up with Earl and Darcy and told them about what I saw. Shortly after getting home, the team asked if I would like to join. Along with investigating as a hobby I love traveling, discovering new beaches and parks, and hunting for gems and beach glass on my travels. I work in accounts receivable for a large company, and also use those skills to help out the group when it comes to administrative tasks. I love meeting new people, so come say hi when you see me out at events!
Hi, my name is Mary, and I joined Paranormal Investigations Nova Scotia in 2018. My daughter Laura has been a member of the group for a little over a year. I have attended almost all of the public events that the group holds around the province, and was excited to join when I learned that they were looking for interested members.
I grew up in a house that was known as the haunted house in the community. We would hear footsteps on the stairs, doors would open for no reason and my grandfather always thought someone was tapping him on the shoulder. I could go on and on with stories about the things that happened there, but I think you get the point. There must be more for us after death; are we just dead or does our spirit carry on? I want to know. I’m happy to be part of a group that thinks the same way I do. I won’t take this position lightly and look forward to some interesting investigations, and meeting all of you!
Hi, my name is Sara Hartley and I just recently joined PINS in 2018. Since the age of 9 I have had numerous experiences and seen my fair share of full body apparitions, and so fascinated me the rest of my life. I have visited many haunted places, and lived in a few. I have been a practicing pagan for over 7 years. When I'm not exploring behind the veil, I am a full time preschool teacher. I decided to join the group, having had an experience a few years ago involving a spirit that altered my view of the paranormal completely. I'm excited to help out in all ways I can!
