FOUNDER/LEAD INVESTIGATOR/WEB MISTRESS
Hello and welcome to the official website of TFC Paranormal Research Team, freakuency.org.
I am Casey, Lead Investigator and founder of TFC Paranormal. By day I am a licensed counselor (LPC) and psychiatric diagnostician. I also have my own counseling practice right here in Bryan/College Station, TX. My usual TFC duty, in that I am a counselor/therapist by trade and make my living drawing people out verbally, is acting as a sort of paranormal spokesperson or liaison and attempting to collect electronic voice phenomenon or (EVP’s) on audio devices. This is done by walking around asking questions that we may not hear responses to at the time but rather later as we are reviewing the audio. I am also the “Web mistress” for our website amongst many other roles.
In terms of my personal life, I am a lifelong rebel and iconoclast. My passions are collecting and showing cars, researching the paranormal, hunting and collecting artifacts, and being a rabid fan of the rock group Blondie. You may read several of my stories and learn more about me on this website in the “Our Stories” section under Casey.
I have long had an interest in the paranormal which began in 1972 when my family moved from Irving, TX. into a beautiful victorian home in the small, historic, and always bizarre town of Calvert, TX. Calvert is known for a lot of things, a lot of them definitely not sane. For those of you who are too young to remember or choose not to remember, Calvert was quite famous back in the 1970’s due to a real flurry in UFO activity and other bizarreness that made national headlines. You will find one of the more famous stories on UFO activity within the “Media Stories” section on the website.
The “jury is still out” with me as to exactly what went on during that time period, but it was definitely weird and left quite an impression on a youngster growing up there.
My childhood home that we lived in there in Calvert, built in 1872, had also been a funeral home for many years before we moved in. I went on to live there for 16 of my most formative years. The experiences that I, my family, and my friends had while growing up there have been instrumental not only in cultivating my interest in the paranormal but in all that I am today.
Although I have unofficially researched the paranormal all of my life and the whole time been labeled a freak, it was not until 2004 that I had the fortune of meeting up with bright, intuitive, and like-minded individuals with whom I could share my life-long interest. And so…here is TFC.
Also pictured with me is “Ace Version 2.0,” our 2011 Nissan Xterra which serves as our official TFC vehicle. Very sadly, Our original Xterra Ace was destroyed in the 9-4-11 Bastrop wildfire but remains immortalized all over the website, in our videos, on our shirts, and in our flash introduction to the website.
Anyway, I will close by saying thanks for tuning in to the “Freakuency.”
My name is Damian. I work for TDCJ. For those of you who don’t know what that means, it means that I am a prison guard. I am also a gamer. I guess I got into the paranormal when my grandfather died. I had always felt like his spirit was there. So, when my friend Charlie said he found TFC through MySpace, I said I was game and the rest is history.
Charlie’s my name. Ghost hunting’s my game. I am a jack of all trades and a master of none. I had my first paranormal experience when I was about 12 years old. I found TFC through MySpace and introduced my good friend, Damian, to TFC.
I have always believed that there is a whole scientific field of study out there that for the most part that no one will touch because of the stigma attached to it, but wholly needing to be researched. I look at this field as investigating “Unexplained Occurrences” and not ghost hunting because no one knows what causes certain odd things to happen and they commonly blame it on ghosts when it could be something as simple as an animal in the attic making noise. When I do find something out of the norm I investigate and document the facts. Then after recording data that is found to be undisputable, I try to find out what is the cause of this recorded fact.
At the Orvis location in Calvert, Texas, I found that there is a noticeable/recordable temperature change from one side of an old iron fence to the other side. This is documented and undisputed but what causes this change has not been discovered. Just because there is a temperature difference does not mean a ghost is causing it. This is how I approach the field of “Ghost Hunting.”
I was in the army (1st Inf Div -The Big Red One) and I am a veteran of the Desert Shield/Storm conflict. After leaving military service I continued working for government entities and worked in Houston, Harris County, Texas in law enforcement. I also worked for a couple of years for the small town of Lexington, Texas as a cop before leaving law enforcement and working in the oilfield service business.
As a cop, I had the authority to enter property whenever I had probable cause to do so. So this opened up to me any place or structure within my area of responsibility to investigation. When someone said a place was haunted I would assume what they saw was actually just someone trespassing and I would then search for the trespassers.
Every place that I was told was haunted I checked out and in only one place out of dozens did I find something unexplained. So from this and other experiences in my life, I am very skeptical of things like E.V.P.’s, orbs, and/or shadow people.
But, I am a Christian and the Bible mentions a host of “supernatural” things, so I have to believe that some paranormal things that people report are true. I just have the belief that not everything that is seen and unexplained is a paranormal event. So, what we must all do is keep our minds open and stick to only the facts and to not depend on fairy tales and urban legends as our base of fact.
I have always been one to embrace “the possible.” Though at times I use a skeptical outlook on things, I tend to look at all possibilities and not just what’s right in front of me. Growing up with two older brothers, I was subject to spooks and scares by them; slowly becoming callused to the whole thing.
Moving into a haunted house at the age of seven, I’ve always expressed an interest in the paranormal after my brothers scared me numb–I started to actually pursue my fears rather than run from them. With my interests growing and my curiosity peaking, I started to study unorthodox subjects dealing with paranormal. It was then I discovered my sensitivity. Moving away from my haunted home; my mind always wandered. I’ve wanted to get closer to the spirits; to know them and speak with them.
I joined TFC with a thirst for adventure and thrills. In my time with the group, I’ve grown close to my crewmates, more of a second family. I’ve learned many things about myself and my past. Things I may have never learned had I not joined. I’ve learned I’m capable of great things and I look forward to improving my own ability while helping to further the science that is paranormal research.
I live a simple life with the woman I love and working for the state. I live day-to-day and have an outlet to sate my lust for adventure and a means to discover more about myself and my talents. I’ve met many wonderful and interesting people in my time with TFC, and now that our hiatus is over, I look forward to broadening my horizons and learning even more.
My name is Edwardo and I have been interested in the paranormal ever since a young age. I am third-generation Mexican-American. I’ve grew up hearing stories from grandparents and other relatives about “things” that happened that could not be explained, stories of “espiritos” visiting, delivering messages. etc.
I began working in the mental health field with Casey, our founder, back in 2006 and again briefly in 2016. Over the years we have remained very close friends. After I went out on my first investigation with TFC I was hooked in more ways than one. I also ended up marrying Casey in 2017.
My current day job is Spanish Teacher at Smithville High School in Smithville, TX. I have been teaching for many years and my list of past jobs, skill sets include: Licensed cosmetologist, retail sales, mental health casework and on call work, ER patient advocate, as well as many years in the ministry.
I now live a quiet life with Casey and I spend time with my 3 sons here and there, doing yard work, traveling, doing some custom woodwork, taking care of our “fleet“ of custom cars, riding my motorcycle, and of course researching the paranormal.
I am Trish, born in Houston, Texas, 1971. After 10 years of living in the city, my parents decided they wanted to move me and my younger sister back to my mom’s hometown of New Braunfels, Texas. I lived and grew up in the historical town of Gruene, home of Gruene Hall and the Guadalupe River. My parents continue to live there.
In 1989, continuing the family tradition of Aggies, I moved to College Station to attend Texas A&M University, where my dad graduated in 1969 and my sister graduated in 1999. I graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Minor in Anthropology. In June 1996, I took a job at MHMR in Bryan as a Children’s Services Caseworker. This is where I met Casey and Roseanne. I continue to work at MHMR as a caseworker in the early childhood intervention program (ECI).
I now have my master’s degree in counseling from St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX and I am working on my professional counselor’s license (LPC). I have been happily married to Rob Brenner since November 2003. I have a daughter, Alexandra Rose, born 10-10-2006, and an orange tabby named Celeste.
Growing up in Gruene, a fairly haunted town, sparked my interest in paranormal research. I grew up in a family that believes in ghosts and the paranormal. I have always had a fascination with old cemeteries, historical homes, and historical buildings. There is no wonder I love Europe so much. Besides travel around the United States, I have traveled to France, England, and Ireland. I hope to make my next trip abroad to Spain in search of my family roots. When I am not out with TFC, studying, or working, I enjoy riding on the back of the Harley with my husband, shopping, going to movies, hanging out with friends and family, reading for enjoyment, dancing, listening to 80’s music, and traveling.
I am Jennifer. I joined TFC in January of 2005 after my sister Roseanna convinced me to come and see what it was like being a professional ghost hunter. Like my sister, I have always been interested in researching paranormal occurrences. When not searching for ghosts with TFC, I attend college and I am working on a degree in psychology. In the evenings I work as a night manager at a local restaurant as well. My hobbies include dancing, ghost hunting (of course), and spending time with my husband, David, and three children, Helena, Christopher, and William.
I am Roseanna, paranormal investigator, (also known as Roseanne, Roxanne, Michelle). I am one of the original members of TFC. I now have a Ph.D. in political science with a specialty in democratic constitutional design, and I am also a registered nurse. My hobbies include traveling abroad (Europe and Latin America mostly), weight lifting, British history and folklore, movie watcher, shopping fiend, and writing.
I have long been fascinated by paranormal activity. Growing up my parents and friends used to have the best ghost stories about occurrences that happened to them when they were growing up. These included stories about hunting for the ghost of White Rock Lake, trips to New Orleans and Galveston and further sparked my interest in conducting paranormal research. A year or so before finding TFC, Trish, Casey, and I used to go out searching for paranormal activity and finally organized into a formal group in October of 2004.
