Ron Kolek is the Emmy-winning founder and lead investigator of The New England Ghost Project. With a degree in Environmental Science from Nathaniel Hawthorne, he was the ultimate skeptic. However, a near death experience changed all that. He now uses his scientific background to seek the truth about the paranormal. Ron produces and hosts Ghost Chronicles on Ghostvillage Radio, iTunes, and PodCast Alley. Ron was also a contributor to Jeff Belanger's Encyclopedia of Haunted Places (2005), Thomas D'Agostino's Haunted New Hampshire (2007), Jeff Belanger's The Ghost Files (2007), and Kalyomi's Ghosts from Coast to Coast (2007).
