Amy Bruni first encountered paranormal activity as a six-year-old when her family moved to Alameda, California. Her family had no idea their home was haunted until Amy witnessed a full-body apparition of a man dressed in green. Years later, Amy discovered the ghost was the landlord's son who died in World War II. Amy's family encouraged her to not let the paranormal world spook her, but instead to embrace it. Amy's been chasing ghosts ever since. In fact, her father started taking her on paranormal investigations when she was only nine!
As Amy got older, her fascination kept growing. In her twenties, Amy spent her weekends flying to haunted locations and conducting her own investigations. Her passion for the paranormal became a full-time job when she joined SyFy's Ghost Hunters in 2007.
Recently, Amy founded Strange Escapes, a paranormal travel agency that pairs people with the largest and most haunted locations in the United States. In between speaking at paranormal events and investigating ghosts, Amy stays at home in Massachusetts raising her three-year-old daughter Charlotte.
Adam Berry grew up in the small town of Muscle Shoals, Alabama and had more paranormal experiences in his childhood than most people do in a lifetime. But unlike Amy, the spirits Adam faced terrorized him. When he was just nine years old, Adam saw a paranormal creature haunting his home. It looked like a menacing ghost dog, and Adam couldn't escape the harrowing sound of the dog scratching against the wall. His TV mysteriously glowed even though it was turned off. In 2006, Adam had his most intense experience in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He saw massive white figures in a field, and heard loud gunshots and people yelling. He rushed to the paranormal sights and sounds, and found no explanation for what he witnessed. This event sparked his interest in the paranormal.
In just a few years, Adam quickly progressed from unknown paranormal novice to well-respected researcher. His newfound passion led him to compete on Ghost Hunters Academy, which landed him a spot on Ghost Hunters in 2010.
In addition to hosting paranormal conferences, Adam runs a musical theater in Massachusetts, and works as a real estate agent selling haunted properties to only the bravest of thrill seekers.
Dalen is addicted to history both in and outside of the paranormal. The entrepreneur and fashion designer is the ringleader of the team, with his finger on the pulse of the who, what, where, when and why of each case. He first encountered the paranormal when he was young child. After attending the funeral of a man lost to gun violence, he awoke to find the man standing over him…clear as day. It’s the experience he never forgot, and one that bonded him to fraternity brother, business partner and BFF Juwan Mass.
Juwan has a huge heart that can get him into the craziest of situations. He has a passion for helping people and is willing to jump into the fire to get answers. The Eagle Scout is a natural born explorer. With that said, he knows when to run when the stuff hits the fan. When he was 12, he turned his attention to the paranormal and ghost hunting. Mass and Spratt bonded over their shared experience and desire to explore the unknown.
Marcus is the most spiritual member of the group, and the only father among the Brothers. His ability to sympathize and relate to families sets him apart, whether it’s bonding with an upset spouse or winning over a scared child. He has an uncanny ability to provide peace and hope to frightened families; and his natural humor can always make clients crack a smile. When Marcus isn’t lending comfort to a beleaguered family, he’s lending an empathetic ear, mad clipper skills, and old school barbershop wisdom to his famous clients at his Atlanta barbershop.
