Former death metal musician, music production artist, bank fraud investigator…. turned paranormal investigator. Ghostly Encounters : Confessions Of A Paranormal Investigator, (Skyhorse Publishing) represents Johnathon's inauguration to the world of authoring and book publishing. Johnathon attended Highland High School in Sparta, Ohio, where he turned his attention to the music industry as a song writer and lead guitar player for a traveling heavy metal band. After several foiled attempts at world domination Johnathon later retired and helped start a local music production company. With an avid interest in the paranormal field and parapsychology, he formed C-Bus Paranormal in the summer of 2011. Since its inception, he has carefully guided the team’s development to include additional investigators located throughout the state, an arsenal of digital technologies useful in capturing evidence of paranormal phenomena, and a commitment to effective investigating methods and strategies. Though he still considers himself a skeptic at heart, Johnathon hasn’t stopped seeking the answers to what lies beyond death.
