Ann Bender

Ann was raised in Michigan on her family's farm. Her first memories are not of horses and flowers, but of the spirits and past events in the family home. Unfortunately, it terrified her parents when she spoke of people, events, and places she had never seen.

She spent her early adulthood using her abilities while working as a paramedic and radiology technologist. When living in Washington, her nearby neighbor was a serial killer. Every time he killed, she dreamed through his victims eyes of his victim's last moments. This drove her to better understand how she could help others and not just sit as a bystander.

In 2003 she moved to California and met her husband, Dave Bender. She became a dowser while working with Dave. For families with delicate questions, the dowsing rods can answer without a word being spoken

Jeff Dwyer

Jeff Dwyer is a third-generation San Francisco Bay Area native. As a boy, he explored the old neigbhoods of Alameda, sometimes sneaking into a abandoned Victorian mansions to look for ghosts. About the age of 10, Jeff noticed that he could see things that others could not. He soon realized he was seeing ghosts or spirit remnants. Throughout his teenage years, Jeff's desire for adventure took him to many of the Bay Area's most historic locations including the old Oakland Airport, Jack London's home in nearby Sonoma, Fort Point in San Francisco, and the Winchester House in San Jose.

Jeff attended the East Bay campus of the California State University, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Southern Calfiornia, earning a bachelor's degree, two master of science degrees, and a Ph. D. in the medical sciences. Jeff has had a variety of experiences in intensive care units, rehabilitation centers, and medical clinics in Southern California and San Francisco Bay Area hospitals.

Numerous paranormal experiences in hospitals and other clinical settings intensified Jeff's interest in ghosts and after-life phenomena and prompted him to write his first book, Ghost Hunter's Guide to the San Francisco Bay Area. This was followed by his second book, Ghost Hunter's Guide to Los Angeles. Jeff's third book, delayed by Hurrican e Katrina, is Ghost Hunter's Guide to New Orleans. It was released in September of 2007. That highly successful book was followed in June of 2008 with the Ghost Hunter's Guide to Seattle and, in September of 2009, Ghost Hunter's Guide to California's Gold Rush Country.

A second edition of Ghost Hunter's Guide to the San Francisco Bay Area. as published in 2012. He is currently completing Ghost Hunter's Guide to Portland and the Oregon Coast. Future projects will take him to Civil War battlefields and to Santa Fe, New Mexico.


Brian Clune

Brian Clune has been an avid paranormal enthusiast for most of his life, but he did not get involved with investigating until his son asked if they could go, “Ghost Hunting.” This brought him to Planet Paranormal, where his life would forever change.

Investigating became a passion and the more he learned about what was involved, the more he realized that history was the key to effective paranormal discovery. His dedication to learning the past has compelled him to become the Historian for Planet Paranormal.

Some of Planet Paranormal’s discoveries guided him towards being involved with a number of television shows including My Ghost Story, The Dead Files, Ghost Hunters, and Ghost Adventures. Brian was also the focus of a companion documentary for the film Paranormal Asylum by Meridien Films.

Brian has appeared on many radio programs as well as giving lectures at top paranormal conventions and has spoken at several colleges both in lecture and teaching capacities. He has also been conducting his own radio show with Peter Haviland called The Full Spectrum Project, where they host every Thursday evening from 8pm to 10pm est.

Charlie Kryszewski

psychic & tarot readerSmall bio of Charlie Intuitive and Tarot reader. I have been reading cards for over six years. Paranormal investigator, and all around nice guy.Having had in interest in Tarot for years, I decided in 2017 to devote the time and finally learn. Finally in 2018 I read a couple of books during the year and I found the Wild Unknown deck in the fall of 2018. I decided in December that I would jump in with both feet and finally do readings. I believe the Tarot is going to be a lifelong journey. I don’t think I’ll ever 100% know the meanings of all the cards. I have experimented with doing readings during investigations and gotten some amazing results.
