Biography
Greg Mansfield is a researcher, writer and adult educator. He has a BA in Economics and a graduate Diploma in Adult Education from the University of British Columbia. He grew up in Richmond, B.C. and has been fascinated by the paranormal (namely ghosts, UFOs and Sasquatch) since he was a boy.

Despite visiting many haunted places across Canada and the United Kingdom, Mansfield has never seen a ghost first-hand, but certainly hopes to one day. And while he hasn’t seen a Sasquatch either, many years ago he and three others witnessed UFOs hovering in close formation over a field near Cardiff, Wales in broad daylight.

An open-minded skeptic, Mansfield is a part-time member of Coldspotters, a Vancouver-based group of ghost investigators and enthusiasts, and is an authority on the haunted places of Vancouver.

“I don’t blame people for being skeptical about ghosts,” Mansfield says, “but I’ve heard so many stories by straight-forward, rational people that I’m convinced something real is going on.”

Mansfield is available for media interviews, presentations and written submissions on the haunted locations of Vancouver, and about the paranormal in general.

He has appeared on GlobalTV BC (with Red Robinson) and CBC TV Vancouver (with Deborah Gobel), and on CFMI (Rock 101), CKNW and Roundhouse radio. He’s also been interviewed for articles in Metro News and The Peak newspapers, and has contributed to Homes & Living (Vancouver) magazine’s “The haunting of…” series of articles.

To schedule Mansfield for an interview, presentation or article submission, please contact him at least a week in advance of the deadline.
