|CLASS INSTRUCTOR: The "O" Word (Ouija Boards)|
Tomasz Kordowski's interest in the paranormal began when he was 13 with a William Fuld Ouija Board. By age 16, he was exploring mausoleums and experimenting with electronic voice phenomena (EVP). In the following years, Tomasz’s communication with the other side via energy circles, spirit boards, or EVP capture yielded disembodied footsteps, voices, and other unexplained experiences. For entertainment, Tomasz found solace in listening to hours of static in a vain attempt to find evidence of someone that isn't really there by editing and polishing audio slices.
A certified audio engineer, Tomasz joined the Portland Oregon Paranormal Society (P.O.P.S.) in 2009 and served as acting director through 2014. There, he quickly deployed his audio engineering training as lead EVP analyst. On investigations, Tomasz utilizes a multi-track recording system to capture sounds in several rooms simultaneously, allowing for comprehensive analysis of the same audio event from different areas. He has captured EVPs from residential and commercial locations including Portland's former U.S. Customs House, the Benson Hotel, and the Hollywood Theater.
Currently, Tomasz is a freelance EVP specialist, graphic artist, and comedy/improv musician in Portland, Oregon. He is also the founder of Wedgie Bird, creating custom and original spirit boards.
