Michael White  pri-logo

Michael White

Team Lead Researcher/Investigator of PRI

Michael does not believe in ghosts in the traditional sense. He suspects that most reported activity is caused by misperceptions of events, misunderstandings of natural occurrences, and contributions from the living to include recurrent spontaneous psychokinesis (RSPK), telepathy, hypnagogic experiences, and other psychic phenomenon. After serving 21 years in the military, he utilizes his skills in surveillance and intelligence analysis to scrutinize data obtained on paranormal investigations and paranormal experiments to identify factors that are explainable or remain unexplained. Michael has been interested in strange phenomenon since age 7 after experiencing his first unexplained event and seriously researching the paranormal since 2004. Michael is the founder of Paranormal Research & Investigations.

Jay Verburg

Director of Historical Research of Oregon Paranormal

Jay began his unexpected paranormal journey as one of the two Greenhorn miners on SyFy’s Ghost Mine. With a passion for the Old West, he has been casually exploring ghost towns and abandoned locations, striving to discover historically rich areas for the past 15 years. Fascination with history and the gold that still runs through the mountains of Eastern Oregon unexpectedly landed him in the small town of Sumpter. It was there he found himself not only working as a hard rock miner, but witnessing events that led him to an entirely new journey — paranormal research. Research of history and the paranormal have led Jay to some of the greatest location throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Utah, and Colorado. Jay currently travels the U.S., speaking on paranormal research, and revealing how history can lead to the discovery of many rumored haunts. Jay works closely with like-minded individuals and investigative groups such as A.S.E.P., the Paranormal Studies Institute, Paranormal Research & Investigations of Washington, and Oregon Paranormal. As Director of Historical Research for Oregon Paranormal, Jay focuses on studying energy and the pursuit of awareness surrounding the existence of intelligence beyond death. As a featured investigator on the internet network Dark Zone, Jay often reveals behind the scenes videos while working on his latest joint project, The Permanents – A documentary focusing on the paranormal “permanent residents” of the Old Wheeler Hotel on the Oregon Coast.

Damah Stearns

Independent Researcher

The paranormal has been a passion of mine ever since my own unexplained experiences as a young child. Over the years I read every book and watched every show I could find on the paranormal.
Whether it was hauntings, cryptozoology, ESP or UFO’s, I was absolutely hooked on all things considered weird or unusual. I also had several loved ones pass away before their time, including both my parents. This sparked even more interest in the possibility of life after death. I would often visit, research and explore all kinds of reportedly haunted locations. In 1995, I had the opportunity to help a family that claimed was being terrorized by paranormal activity in their home. It was a case that cemented my devotion to the studies of the paranormal. I was able to educate and help this family make better sense of what was going on in their home, and how not to live in fear. I had found my calling! I finally found a way I could not only continue my quest to understand the paranormal, but I could also help people!

Thru the years I have met many individuals and families of all walks of life that have come face to face with the unexplained. It can be quite rattling and terrifying especially where kids are involved. Words can’t describe the incredible feeling of being able to help these people and give them peace of mind. I continued to work cases independently, until eventually I joined a couple different paranormal investigative teams. In 2012, I co-founded Portland Paranormal Research Team, with a colleague. Tragically my colleague passed away unexpectedly only 8 months later. It was difficult but I continued the team and now have conducted countless investigations at historical, commercial, residential locations, even several universities. I now also collaborate with other highly respected colleagues, teams and independent researchers in the paranormal field on various cases and experiments.
