Name:Christopher Allen Medina
Position:Paranormal Investigator

As a youth I have always been intrigued with the paranormal. I have had experiences with the unexplained as far back as I can remember. As a youth my family moved around a lot and gave me the opportunity to live in many different places. I would have to say I’ve had experiences in 70% of them. Being a member of CPI gives me a chance to explore my desire to find the answers to questions most choose to ignore and few dare to learn.
