Ohio Paranormal Convention 2010 In 2010, he teamed up with Ghost Excavator, John Sabol, to present "Breaking the Mold". This presentation explored the popular approach to investigating and exposed some fatal flaws, introduced John's method of "excavating", and provided a case analysis from our joint investigation into Farnam Manor in Richfield, Ohio.

In 2010, Brian also appeared at the Mysteries and Paranormal Convention in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania. The event was presented by the Myseries and Paranormal Society based in Sharon, Pennsylvania.MapCon 2010 The event took place in three separate buildings; the vendors and presenters met the public in the local VFW building, some presenters (including Lorraine Warren) appeared in an old opera house, and others appeared in a Church built in 1882 (Chloe Pierce Church) which also serves as the local historical society building.

He conductd an early and shortened version of "The Power of Belief in Paranormal Investigation" which explored concepts of belief and how it can affect paranormal phenomenon.

Journals and Magazines

Brian was fortunate to appear in an article in the September-October, 2009Journal of Anomalous Sciences edition of "The Journal Of Anomalous Sciences" web-based magazine. The article was born from information he gathered for his group's handbook, information he felt all his investigators needed to know in dealing with the basics of science. The article was titled "The Science of Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation" and focused on a brief history of how science began in the paranormal field, an overview of the scientific method and how ghost investigation fits in, and flaws that hold the paranormal field back. It was a great moment for Brian to realize one of his dreams of appearing in a scientific Journal.

My latest book, "Handbook for the Amateur Cryptozoologist", appears in the New and Notable section of the July/August 2014 edition of the Skeptical Inquirer. Skeptical Inquirer? Yes, to have a book based on cryptozoology to be accepted by the leading skeptical organization is a huge honor and proves that my work is truly balanced. It would be far too easy to have others in the cryptid field give their stamp of approval for a book like this, but to appeal to true science and balanced-minded thinking was the goal with this book.

Brian appeared in the seventh issue of "Beyond Parazine", a paranormal web-based magazine that is based in the United Kingdom. The issue was released in October, 2014, and this magazine is a major sponsor for Paracon UK that takes place on November 22nd and 23rd in which John Sabol will be presenting. The article in which Brian appeared served as a "who's who" for the "Ghost Excavation" team lead by John Sabol and Mary Becker.
