Josh Gates – Destination Truth
World Adventurer ( and international monster hunter) Josh Gates has careened through nearly 100 countries, investigating frightening myths, chilling crypto-zoological legends, and terrifying paranormal phenomena. Known as “the face of Syfy,” Josh is the host of the hit travel-adventure series, Destination Truth. In addition, Josh hosts Ghost Hunters Halloween Live and other special events for the channel throughout the year.
His travels have taken him to some of the most remote and treacherous locations on earth, from a terrifying night alone in King Tut’s tomb to the radioactive shadow of Chernobyl. An avid scuba diver, Josh has participated in sub-sea archaeological excavations in the Mediterranean, and as a photographer, he’s traveled from sweltering African villages to the icy heights of the Himalayas. In addition, he has scaled “the roof of Africa” on Mt. Kilimanjaro, climbed on Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the Americas, and sailed to the shores of Antarctica at the bottom of the world.
In recognition of his adventures and work around the globe, Josh was recently inducted into the prestigious Explorers Club in New York. Josh holds degrees in archaeology and drama from Tufts University and is available for appearances and speaking engagements around the world.
Joe Chin – Ghost Hunters International
Joe Chin, a self-described “happy go lucky guy,” grew up in a close-knit family of 11 and worked primarily with the family’s businesses. His interest in the paranormal dates back to his teenage years. Growing up, Joe remembers that the third floor of his tenement house was always lively with
instances of unexplained paranormal activity.
And although he experienced the supernatural as a youngster, he had no idea that people
looked for the paranormal until he met Jason Hawes. Months after meeting Jason, he was asked to join the group and several cases later he is still a part of the thriving team.
“Joining Ghost Hunters International has given me the opportunity to travel the world
and push my passion for the paranormal to new levels,” said Joe.
Since joining the team, Joe has cultivated what he refers to as a “skeptical curious side,” that spurs him to want to get to the bottom of things. He also relates this innate curiosity to being a computer technician, a trade he delves into in his spare time. When working with computers he always has to
figure out what the problem is and how to resolve it as quickly as possible – similar to the work that he and the other ghost hunters do.
When he isn’t investigating cases, Joe enjoys computer gaming, movies, outdoor activities, learning about crypto zoology and spending time with his family.
The Shadow Chasers have been investigating the paranormal for the last 13 years and have been featured multiple times in the media, most prominently in Cheri Farnsworth’s Haunted Northern New York series, as well as in a series of documentaries produced by PBS Television.
The team were the PBS TV Ghost Hunters for 3 years before partnering with Lite 98.7 WLZW for the Haunted History Investigations series.
Co-Founder Katya Von Heuser is the author of Chasing Shadows: New York Ghosts released Sept 2012.
