Founder A.P.R.A. - Brandon Alvis has always had interests and questions about the paranormal after tragically losing two brothers, one to cancer and the other to suicide. Starting with a few friends using standard tools and procedures, he realized the many mistakes "commonly found" when investigating the paranormal. This motivated him to propagate a team specializing in many fields and to develop new methods not only reliable but convincing, introducing the "scientific approach" and naming this team: "American Paranormal Research Association" aka A.P.R.A. This new approach along with his leadership and entrepreneurial skills has propelled A.P.R.A., becoming a highly recognized name. His hard work, dedication and passion to this science are greatly respected, often allowing A.P.R.A. to investigate in areas normally closed-off to others. Pioneering fundraisers and special events, he along with his team, provide participants an insight into the paranormal wherein proceeds go to the preservation of the historical structure. His determination to find "cold hard facts, to prove or disprove" makes A.P.R.A. what it is today.
