Managing Director/Case Manager
Cindy was born and raised in New Castle, PA and has been researching all areas considered paranormal for as far back as she can remember. After having experiences that couldn't be explained, she decided that you couldn't fear the unknown if you armed yourself with knowledge. Since joining GPPS in January of 2008, that's exactly what she tries to help others do. Her compassion and dedication to every client make her a great fit as Case Manager. Her drive and dedication to each member of GPPS make her a great team leader.
She considers herself an open-minded skeptic and is always looking for hard proof of paranormal activity without ruling out the improbable
When not investigating or reviewing evidence with GPPS, whom she considers her second family, she spends her free time with her understanding Fiance, her two awesome sons, her Beagle, Jack, and insane, wonderful cat, Mo.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh PA, Mike has spent most of his life underacheiving and finding new ways to turn everyday household items into weapons of mass destruction. When he was a child Mike's parents had to lock up all of the tools so he wouldn't try to take apart his fisher price & tonka toys to turn them into robotic game show hosts.
Mike is a computer geek by day and a computer geek by night as well so having him sit in front of monitors waiting for freaky stuff to happen is not a far stretch from his day job of keeping his employees off of adult sites at work.....
With over 16 years experience in the computer/network/security industry, Mike spent several of those with an industry pioneer for online/streaming video and video post production.
Most of the tech equipment that GPPS utilizes has been built from scratch by Mike in order to get the best quality while cutting down on costs. A page will be set up in the next few weeks going over the gear and techniques that GPPS uses during investigations

Shawn is 24 years old and lives in Wampum Pa (about an hour north of Pittsburgh).
He got into the paranormal, possibly because of his religious background, and his belief that there had to be something out there beyond death. The paranormal always fascinated, yet terrified Shawn as a kid. Never having a personal experience before, hw was always worried about seeing spirits. As Shawn got older, the fear subsided and his fascination grew stronger. He saw the show Ghost Hunters on Sci-Fi and always thought how great it would be to do the same thing. Shawn looked up G.P.P.S, submitted an application and been doing what he imagined doing ever since.
