Tim Wood: Founder / Lead Reno Paranormal Investigator

Reno Paranormal Investigations was established by Tim Wood, who is a veteran paranormal investigator with a two-decade track record. He is renowned for his assistance to families dealing with malevolent supernatural occurrences and his employment of advanced paranormal tests to document and converse with the spirit world.

Growing up in a haunted house in the San Francisco Bay Area, Tim was exposed to many paranormal experiences which developed an early interest in the subject. This led him to attend UC Davis and, in 2002, begin investigating the paranormal in Northern California. This eventually led to the creation of Bay Area Paranormal Investigations (BAPI), Sonoma Spirit, and Bay Area Society for Paranormal Research (BASPR), and SF Paranormal. During this time, Tim studied the paranormal under Lloyd Auerbach.
