The GhostStop Crew
We build it. We are passionate about it. We are GhostStop.
GhostStop was started by experienced paranormal investigators with a specific passion for equipment used in the field. Below is a little glimpse into the crew that makes up GhostStop, our expertise and a little about our passions.
Owner | Lead InvestigatorShawn, owner of GhostStop, has worked with some of the most notable in the paranormal field providing technical expertise and designing equipment for teams and paranormal shows around the world. He has appeared on Ghost Hunters bringing in new tech and investigating along with TAPS. This experience as a respected investigator lead to development of several well-known pieces of investigative gear and eventually lead him to start GhostStop. Prior to this Shawn has a long career designing and programming for a handful of popular brands and products though his passion is in turning a small spark of a concept into a big bang of an idea. He enjoys Star Wars, drawing, a good video game, poker and general geek awesomeness. Shawn has a great passion for creative thought and learning new things. Just don't ask him what he did 5 minutes ago - he probably doesn't remember.

Resident Ghostly AdvisorGus has been interested in the paranormal all his life. Being a ghost himself, he is a complete believer. Gus is an actor by trade and has been a stunt double or an extra in many films including Ghostbusters, Ghost and The Shining. He loves traveling, long walks on the beach, candle-lit dinners and practical jokes on the living.
Operations ManagerJen is one of the few central Florida natives left on this planet. Even more rare, she's a Florida native who still enjoys Disney. Princess Jennifer keeps us in check and on good behavior (mostly) with her sometimes-annoying organizational habits. She loves pens. All of them. Seriously, if you bring her a pen she'll love you forever. Jen is also our resident medical adviser, fur-baby keeper and keeps us well informed on what the Hollywood celebrities are up to.
Customer Service Tech | InvestigatorHe’s just a small town guy, livin’ in a lonely world. Originally from the New Jersey country side, Graham appreciates the little things in life. Graham’s love of technology keeps him on the cutting edge of every pixel. As a manager of a TAPS Family team, Graham has been investigating quite a long time building his experiences and utilizing his technical knowledge to conduct thorough investigations and provide equipment advice you can rely on. Graham loves to laugh. If you call up, throw a joke at him.
Production ManagerJustin is a brilliant mad scientist. Sometimes the mad outweighs the science and that's how we like it at GhostStop. We firmly believe that the greatest accomplishments come from a healthy dose of crazy ideas. Justin comes from a strong electronics tech background grown right here in the heart of Florida. He loves planes, flight simulators and anything that whirrs, buzzes and clangs. You can usually tell a lot about a person by the music they listen to. Justin doesn't listen to music much. He generally listens to tech talks which just goes to show his passion for learning.
ShippingAmber enjoys a nice swim in our packing-peanut box. She's the shipping queen who gets it done and takes great pride in her work. Amber loves gaming and has a big heart for our animal friends with fur and four legs. There's an extra special part of her heart devoted to animals of the ocean variety.
Electronics TechBzzzzzzzzzzt. That's the sound of Joel working on some lasers. Yes. Friggin' laser beams. Joel came to us from his experience in developing and manufacturing high-tech lasers and photonics. He loves building things and always has a big smile on his face.
Electronics TechDerrick is the newest addition to the GhostStop crew. As a fellow geek and maker of things, we are excited where his experience will aid our team and the field. Having taught electronics manufacturing and development to students, he is an avid learner and teacher. The chances of catching Derrick at Disney are very high.
Events & Sales TechPaul Bradford originally comes from over the pond in Britain. Paul’s interests in the paranormal don't come from any personal experiences but rather from his love of science and watching way too much sci-fi television. Having served as the tech manager for SyFy's Ghost Hunters International television show, Paul has developed and designed a number of tools used on the shows and by teams all over the world. When not hunting ghosts, Paul spends his time geeking out with comic book movies, making costume props and pretending he's flying around space and time saving the galaxy in a blue phone box.
