Founder of the Ghostfinder Paranormal Society, Barri has over 15 years’ experience in investigating the paranormal. I first met Barri at Sage Paracon UK, and within 5 minutes of meeting him, I found myself sat listening to EVPs that he had collated from an investigation the night before. Straight away it was evident, that after so many years in the field, he hadn't lost an ounce of enthusiasm.

It doesn't matter who I speak to about Barri, they always repeat the same thing - He gets amazing EVPs, and lots of them! He was the first person that I ever heard talk about a 'DVP' or, Direct Voice Phenomenon. I regularly wondered why certain people hear a voice on an investigation, but no one else does. This theory certainly gives reasoning to why that may happen, and with the shear quality that he collects throughout his travels, I'm naming him the EVP/DVP King! No seriously, I think his hearing is on par with a bat!

Barri is involved in all manner of projects within the paranormal, most notably and recently; Help My House Is Haunted. Airing on ReallyTV this year, Barri starred with co-hosts Chris Fleming and Sandy Lakdar and proceeded to take UK Paranormal TV by storm. The 12-part series was produced by none other than Zak Bagans of Ghost Adventures. Following the investigators into homes plagued by ghostly activity, the team look to obtain evidence and reasoning to the hauntings that are taking place. Each week the ratings and viewings continued to rise, it's safe to say that the show was a tremendous success, and long may it continue!

It's quite clear that Barri is regarded as one of the best, if not the best, paranormal investigator in Britain. His appearances, and list of people he's worked alongside speaks for itself. It just goes to show, if you are genuine and you're a good person, opportunities and doing what you love can be the result.

I was extremely fortunate to investigate with the EVP King on a recent trip to The Haunted Antiques Paranormal Research Centre. He joined the Haunted Live team as we streamed to thousands whilst exploring a location close to our hearts. The activity that we encountered was some of the best we've ever documented, partly due to the presence of Barri. His professionalism and attention to detail really shone through, and I know I for one learnt a lot that night.

If you'd like to keep up to date with everything Barri is involved in, then go to the Connect area at the top of the page. From here, you can visit and explore his website, follow him on Twitter and even give his page a like on Facebook! 

Hopefully we'll be seeing him on our screens in 2019!

Oh, and if I look like a fangirl in the photo above – good! That’s exactly what I was going for!
