Christopher Lee Smith was born and Raised in Gallatin Tennessee and Rocked in the cradle of southern pride and a strict missionary baptist upbringing. Chris is very family oriented and Deeply rooted in his Christian Faith. His curiosity of paranormal activity stemmed from a supernatural experience that took place in his grandfathers old barn located in the outskirts of rural Tennessee. Chris then began researching a phenomenon known as “Shadow People”, shadow-like humanoid figures that, according to believers, are seen mostly in peripheral vision. They are sometimes regarded in modern folklore and paranormal popular culture as malicious, evil spirits or “wraiths”. A hard core sceptic of ghosts in the traditional since, Chris believes in the plan of God the Father: You die, you are judged, you go to your “long home”. The nature of your home depends on your preparations with the big man upstairs prior to your appointment with the reaper. So what's left? The list is of theories are endless in the eyes of TWC founder Chris Smith. “We will never know what they are exactly. That's why we are so dead set on their discovery. It’s our human nature. One thing I know they are not... human.” Chris uses scientific testing and a strong Christian Faith to make his assumptions in a paranormal world, filled with many questions and very few answers.

Adam Bonnett is a paranormal investigator and motivational speaker, but he is not just any paranormal investigator. What makes him different? He’s in a wheelchair. His condition didn’t slow him down, it just forced him to develop creative alternatives. He created and copyrighted a wheelchair bound ghost named Glider, that he uses to represent himself and others with disabilities. Glider is a symbol that there are no limitations to those who truly believe.
Often considered a “rolling trigger object”, Adam uses his unique position to his advantage when investigating. After years of investigating and trying different techniques, one technique started yielding great results. He calls it, “The Paralytic Paranormal Affect”. What is Paralytic Paranormal Affect? It is the situation to where a spirit can relate to someone in a similar position. In my situation, a wheelchair. Is it possible for a door to open after asking for help? Can I use myself as a way to get results? Techniques, trials and consideration of relating to spirits that were in wheelchairs does work!
