About the Ghost Hunters

Jason Hawes created The Atlantic Paranormal Society, or TAPS, with fellow plumber Grant Wilson. Both are part of a small, blue-collar Rhode Island community where many of the TAPS members were born and raised. Jason’s own highly personal paranormal experience (which he prefers not to discuss) prompted him to do more than wonder about an afterworld. He launched TAPS from a spare room of his apartment. Jason's wife respects TAPS' mission, but keeps her distance - and had asked her husband not to bring his paranormal work home. Jason enjoys chasing ghosts, obviously, but he also loves spending time with his kids, deep-sea fishing and writing screenplays— he has written four sci-fi/thriller stories.

Steve Gonsalves is the TAPS technology manager and evidence analyst. It is his responsibility to train all TAPS members on how to use and maintain the team's wide range of high-tech equipment. As the technology manager, Steve oversees all members of the TAPS Tech team. This includes investigators, technical advisors and investigators in training. Steve has been a public speaker and educator about paranormal phenomena for more than 10 years. He is also the co-founder of the TAPS publication, Paramagazine.
