Christopher Spores
Deputy Director
Lead Investigator
Georgia

Chris was born in the small town of Brunswick, on the sunny, Southeast coast of Georgia. He developed a strong work ethic and sense of local pride that stemmed from spending summers volunteering with his church youth group, by painting houses, building playgrounds, and planting gardens. He was also heavily involved in the local arts in his community and volunteered at the historic theater during his senior year in high school. His love for serving people and his community, brought him to a Maximized Living clinic, where he began a three-year career as a chiropractic assistant. During this time, he became an advocate for his patient's health, counseling them in nutrition, exercise and detox. He enjoyed working closely with his patients and being a positive force in their lives everyday. Coupled with his strong sense of community, and his heart for serving people, Chris possesses a talent and passion for the culinary arts and was classically trained at the Le Cordon Bleu school in Scottsdale, Arizona. He moved to Evanston in January of 2014 and began working as the Executive Assistant for the Evanston Chamber of Commerce, where he serves on a committees for Chamber and the City. In what leisure time he has, he enjoys reading novels about prehistoric marine life and playing vintage video games with his girlfriend, Kayla. He has two small sons who live in Georgia. He likes to think that they keep him humble and grounded, reminding him that life is precious and every moment a gift. He is extremely grateful and proud to be part of the Pulse Paranormal Team and looks forward to the many years of investigations, friendships, and excitement that being a part of Pulse will surely bring.

My journey into the paranormal began at a very young age. My childhood was different than most people. As a child, I would regularly see “people” who were not physically there. I would feel a variety of different emotions that were not my own. I could hear voices, music, and sounds that others could not. I was drawn to touching everything due to the vibrations the objects emitted.  Luckily, my parents supported me and made me feel normal. I hid these abilities from others the best I could. I did not want people to judge me. As I grew older, I realized that I was not a freak, and I was given a gift. I was proud of what I could do; therefore, I decided to embrace my abilities. I began a quest to understand the paranormal by investigating every place that I would go. Throughout my life, I lived in numerous states and even lived in England for four years. While in England, I was able to travel to many other countries. At almost every place I visited, I was able to feel, see, and hear things others could not. My final destination eventually became Utah. I discovered a paranormal group in Utah, and I excitingly joined. I now was with others that could understand and accept my abilities. My dedication to the paranormal allowed me to quickly ascend to the position of second in the hierarchy. Unfortunately, I was not happy with the team’s focus and plans for the future. I, and others from the team, decided to start fresh and create a new and more dedicated paranormal investigation team. Cordell and I created Paranormal Pulse in 2009. Paranormal Pulse quickly acquired a stellar reputation and provided me with many opportunities that other teams were not given. I have been investigating the paranormal for over 30 years. The paranormal and I have been linked my entire life. I now can openly, and proudly share my experiences with others.

David Alderton
Director
Director Technology
United Kingdom

Just arrived in Utah from the NW coast of Scotland, UK where I was an investigator with the Ghost Club of London (Est 1862) and the SPR (Est 1882). I began investigating the paranormal in 1983 and formed a research group in 1988 in Northumberland, England before joining the Ghost Club in 1995. I've always had an interest in the paranormal from a very young age and have continued to hold this fascination throughout my life. By profession I'm an Electrical/Instrument Engineer, having worked now in Engineering for 26 years. Although I have been investigating now for a number of years, I still retain a healthy sceptism and am focussed on identifying natural explanations for the things we see and hear.

I was born and raised in Tooele, Utah.

I enjoy coaching sports and have done so ever since I graduated high school. I enjoy the outdoors hiking, riding motorcycles, hunting, fishing and I am a member of the Tooele County Search and Rescue.

I had a couple things happen when I was younger that was out of the ordinary and ever since I have been interested in the paranormal.

My Brother and I started investigating a few years back and investigated anywhere we could get in.  I have always enjoyed looking into the unknown.

I live in Fort William, in the highlands of Scotland, UK. Happily married to Kara with 4 children and a granddaughter. I've always been interested in the paranormal from an early age and began investigating in 2011 and since then have been hooked. When I saw that Pulse was spreading to the UK I jumped at the chance to join up and to be part of a global paranormal community.

I moved around a lot while growing up & have been to many historic places. Salem Mass. Was definitely my favorite! I have also been to Gettysburg & Valley Forge to name a few. Once, while taking my own unplanned "scenic route" through Colorado, I was lucky enough to drive past the Stanley Hotel. Awesome!!!!
