We build it. We are passionate about it.
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.
We are GhostStop.
Owner | Lead Investigator
Shawn, 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 Advisor
Gus 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.
Jen 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.
Megan is the newest addition to the GhostStop Crew. She comes to us after many years at Disney. Having managed the logistics of some of the most protected costumes, parts and technology the Mouse holds dear, she knows the importance of getting things where they need to be with the upmost care. The first thing she did with her new found freedom moving over to GhostStop was dying her hair - something strictly forbidden under Mouse rules. We're super happy to have her on board and can't wait to see where she helps lead us.
As a fellow geek and maker of things, Derrick loves working on all the things that buzz and beep. 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.
Whether it be electronics or a hot rod BMX bike, Gavin is rippin' it up and rockin' in his own style. On the weekends you'll probably find Gavin tearin' it up at the local skate park. On Monday you'll find him nursing a hellacious knee scab. But he does it all knowing that sometimes it takes a few scrapes to get the job done well.
Many people in the paranormal field know Bob well as a veteran investigator and an all 'round good dude. The first thing you'll notice about Bob is his passion for learning more about you and that hearty New York accent. We've known him for over a decade as an avid investigator who loves tech. Bob loves Supernatural, both as a field and the TV show. If you call up, ask him, "Sam or Dean?"
Meet Conner, a Lynchburg local with a majestic mane of rock-star hair. He's a rock music and movie buff, with a geeky soft spot for 'classics' like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Marvel, and Jurassic Park. Honestly, it makes me of feel old that he refers to those as classics. He also mentioned 'old' rock. But I'm now afraid to ask what he considers old. Conner's no slouch when it comes to gaming, rocking the gym and dominating titles like God of War, The Legend of Zelda, and Uncharted. Social and outdoorsy, he's always up for a chat and a challenging adventure, making Lynchburg his epic playground.
Bill Chappell is a renowned inventor and paranormal technology expert, widely recognized for his groundbreaking contributions to the field of ghost hunting. With his innovative inventions and charismatic personality, Bill has become a familiar face on the popular television show "Ghost Adventures." He has dedicated his career to developing cutting-edge devices that bridge the gap between science and the spiritual realm - most notably, the Ovilus.
Though he will sometimes refer to his status as 'semi-retired', his unwavering passion for the paranormal field keeps him pushing forward alongside the GhostStop crew.
We, at GhostStop, are honored to call him part of our Crew.
A nomadic beach bum from California, Devin loves video games, spending time with family and proving his status as a Batman superfan. The concept of Batman tech drives his belief that ordinary men can do extrordinary things with outside-the-cave thinking. He comes to GhostStop with a strong passion to learn and strives to be the most excellent he can be. As one of the newest additions to the GhostStop Crew, we're excited to see where his expertise will help us create and grow our line of products in the future.
We call him Boggs. It just sounds like he should be the star of an 80's detective tv show, right? But moreso, because he shares the same name as the owner, Shawn. Anyhow, Sean... err Boggs... comes to us with a significant tech background and passion for 3D printing and modeling. As one of the newest additions to the GhostStop Crew, we're confident our line of products are in good hands when "Detective Boggs is on the case."
Day one, Javaune, pulled out an impressive amount of tools from his car to tackle a project. We knew right away that he would fit in with our builder mindset and initiative to tackle the job with the right tool and, let's be fair, his wicked choice in shirt designs. As one of the newest additions to the GhostStop Crew, we're excited to see where his expertise will help us create and grow our line of products in the future.
