Richard Valdes – Lead Investigator/Spokesperson

Since childhood I have always shown interest in anything supernatural. I have a christian background and was exposed to religious studies delving into demonic possession, exorcisms, angels, and occult practices. Later on in my adulthood I continued my studies in these subject matters through the writings of my pastor Frank Marzulo. I read up on case files involving Ed and Loraine Warren, John Zaffis and especially the late and great Hanz Holzer. I have been mentioned in the book Ghost Hunters of the South by Alan Brown representing the state of Florida during my stint with Florida Ghost Team (2004-2005). I then created the National Paranormal Society with 2 other colleagues in April of 2005. We were mentioned again in a book State by State edited by Matt Weiland and Sean Wilsey for an investigation involving the great state of Louisiana and the ninth ward which was devastated by hurricane Katrina. The author’s name of that contributing story was Joshua Clark.
In 2015 I was given the honor from Bishop James Long and the United States Old Catholic Church to be recognized as one of three demonologists for his organization.

My new team and I, Paranormal Consulting Agency, wish to continue to shed light onto the unknown world of the paranormal in hopes of helping every client one at a time.

Desire’e Page – Investigator/EVP Specialist

Ever since I was a little girl I would hear and see things that were otherwise unexplainable and those experiences are what have fueled my interest in the paranormal as an adult. I had the privilege of growing up in not one but two “haunted” houses as a child. At the age of eight was introduced to homemade Ouija boards and dancing naked under a full moon as part of a money spell, all thanks to one of my interesting and inspiring aunts. At the tender age of nine I realized I was blessed with the gift of premonition dreams and, with the help of Angel, have been working on perfecting this gift along with many others.

In early 2007 my brother came to me with the idea of starting our own paranormal team and by July Hollywood Investigators of the Paranormal was formed. Throughout the last year we were fortunate enough to work side by side with some of the best teams in South Florida. But one team in particular stood out more than all the rest. PCA is comprised of organized and hardworking individuals that truly care about their clients. Knowing that H.I.P and PCA share these goals in common, we decided to combine our teams in August 2008.

Devan Kinney – Tech

As a kid I’ve always been interested in science and the human body. This fascination has followed me through my adult life and after I had my own paranormal experience as a young kid; I was about 8 or 9 years old when I was visited by my great grandmother who said a few words to me after she had passed away. That was the spark that fuels my passion for finding the truth in the paranormal . When I was young I loved all of those tv ghost shows. It wasn’t until my ex introduced me to ghosthunters the tv show years ago that I decided to start my own team of paranormal investigators called Hollywood Investigators of the Paranormal also known as H.I.P. H.I.P.and PCA worked like a close knit family of scientists, debunkers, levelheaded open minded caring people. I know being a part of this team will help me accomplish the common goals all team members of PCA have . First is to care for the client, help how we can, educate the public, and be pioneers in this scientific field seeking answers in human evolution. This is why I joined PCA.

Tami Valdes – Investigator/Client Care/Reiki Master

I am very proud to represent PCA as a Reiki Master who studied under Jed Schlackman. Angel Garcia was the original Reiki master that brought me to this field of study by discovering that I have a natural energy healing gift. I help clients who need energy balancing as part of the healing process. I am also the client care for the team and will interview the client to find the best way that PCA can help the client. Often I am the contact person for the team and will follow up on cases and clients to ensure proper client care. Kindness, patience, and perseverance is what I like to believe I bring to the team to benefit our clients.

David Kinney – Tech

I am an investigator and photo specialist for the team. Having been born around the middle of last century I have a slightly different perspective than the rest of the team members. I’m closer to becoming a “ghost”. My photo experience comes from the U.S. Air Force where I was a map maker and a photo interpreter. One of the jobs that I had was to target nuclear weapons for B-52′s using spy satellite technology.

On the investigating side the first time that I experienced any thing unusual was when I was 10 yrs old. One night I woke up from a sound sleep in a panic. I knew something was wrong. The lights were out, the house was quite but something wasn’t right.

I laid back down but before I could get back to sleep a car door slammed outside. A minute later my mom was at the front door so drunk that she could hardly stand. I helped her into bed and went back to sleep not thinking very much about how I knew. Oh, and I used to wake up every time that my folks fought. It didn’t matter how quite they were or where they were in any of the houses that we lived in, I woke up. Later when I met Jamie, Desiree’s “aunt”, she told me NEVER to use a Ouija board because I was a “window”. And just like an open window I could not control whether a butterfly or a wasp came in. She convinced me and I never really tried to expand any of the gifts that I might have. Later my son got the family watching Ghost Hunters and we formed the core of Hollywood Investigators of the Paranormal. After working with several of the paranormal investigating teams here in South Florida we merged HIP with PCA because their professionalism and dedication were outstanding. And here I am.

“My experience began when I was eleven. I had a dream (or vision) of my Grandfather. Although at the time he lived in a nursing home, in my dream he was in his old homestead rocking slowly in his rocking chair while watching his telephone. When he reached for his phone as if to make a call I woke up and walked into my parent’s bedroom. Just then the phone began to ring and before my parents answered the phone, I said, “Grandpa is dead!” I don’t know how I knew; I just knew. You can imagine my parent’s expressions when Dad answered the phone and was told exactly the same thing I said moments before!

I don’t think the paranormal is “supernatural.’ My personal theory is that all things paranormal are merely a part of what science has yet to quantify. Spirits, ghosts, etc., are organized and sometimes intelligent energy existing beyond the physical body stage with which we are so familiar. I am convinced that it is an everyday part of nature. Most of these spirits find their way to their proper destination after the death of their physical bodies. What we encounter are the much smaller percentage that remain for awhile for various reasons.

Angel Garcia

My name is Angel. I am a Medium with psychometric psychic abilities; meaning I see with touch. I also work with eclectic pagan arts to tap into the energies and help those who are living deal with those whom have passed. I have worked with private clients and paranormal investigators alike. I didn’t choose this path…I believe it was chosen for me. I was born with my abilities and was given the opportunity to help others understand the supernatural. I’ve lived in Miami and worked directly with PCA there and am now with the Georgia division of PCA. We are NOT just “Paranormal Investigators”, we are consultants with a singular goal in mind; helping people understand and
live with the supernatural. I could not be any more prouder of the team we have assembled and the family we have become. I do not charge for the use of my gift, for it is just that, a gift, and I believe I was born with this life mission and will continue to do my best to help those in need.
