|CLASS INSTRUCTOR: The "O" Word (Ouija Boards)|
|CLASS INSTRUCTOR: ABCD-EVP|
It began for Tomasz with a William Fuld Ouija Board at age 13. By age 16, mausoleum exploration and experiments with electronic voice phenomena (EVP) recordings became a commonplace after school activity. Communication in the following years with the other side via energy circles, Ouija boards, or EVP capture would yield disembodied footsteps, voices, and other abnormalities. And he brought it all upon himself.
A certified audio engineer, Tomasz rolled with the Portland Oregon Paranormal Society (P.O.P.S.) from 2009-2014, putting his audio engineering training to use as lead EVP analyst. On any given night, he might utilize a multi-track recording system to capture sounds throughout several rooms at once, allowing for comprehensive analysis of the same audio event from different sections of the establishment. Then later, for entertainment, he would find solace in listening to hours of static in a vain attempt to find evidence of someone that isn't really there, editing, and polishing audio slices. He has captured EVPs from many residential locations and commercial establishments, such as downtown Portland's former U.S. Customs House, the Benson Hotel, and the Hollywood Theater. He was acting director of P.O.P.S. throughout 2014. Currently, Tomasz is a freelance EVP specialist, artist, and comedy/improv musician in Portland, Oregon. He is the founder of Wedgie Bird; custom and original spirit boards. During normal-person hours, he functions as an instructional/graphic designer.
