AGA Ghost Ambassadors ~ Meet the Team…
Hello. My name is Ting, founder of AGA. As long as I can remember, the paranormal world has been a part of my life. As a marketing director for vacation tourism, and also as a full time Firefighter/ EMT, I see people at the happiest time of their lives (vacationing) and at the worst times of their lives (911 emergencies). Seeing people in this setting has given me insight on the world of the living and the dead. It creates a natural balance in my life. The AGA team is beyond the question of “Are there ghost?” We actually are studying them and making communications with them. Our locations provide us with a research facility that actually allow us to make communications with the same spirits on a daily bases. As your tour guide, I’m able to offer you a fun filled experience with some meaningful insight to the other side. We’ve been featured on Good Day Orlando, AAA magazine, several podcast shows, been on Real Radio 104.1, Orlando Sentinel has written about us and I’ve been featured on Mysteries at the Museums. The best thing is American Ghost Adventures is where the paranormal is normal and you’re on one of the top 10 ghost tours of the world! We look forward to hosting you!

Hi, my name is Debbie. Born and raised in Wisconsin, I’ve been an Orlando area resident since 1983, and have a background in psychology. When not working in the hospitality industry, or out hiking in the wilderness, I’m chasing my other passions: history, antiquing, and of course, all things paranormal. As a collector of genuine ghost stories from all over the world, who has enjoyed a lifetime of personal paranormal experiences, I’m always eager to seek out many more. I’m excited to be a member of the AGA team, and look forward to exploring the spirit world with you on one of our upcoming tours.
Hello Everyone! My name is Lindsey and I grew up in Massachusetts where hearing ghost stories is the norm. I’m a skeptic by nature, and never fully believed until I personally experienced the paranormal first hand here in Orlando! With the rich and vibrant history of Orlando, I look forward to giving you a ghost story of your own!
I’m Robert and I’ve been ghost hunting since 1987.I grew up in Southern California, and have lived coast to coast. I’ve always had an affinity for ghosts and other things that go bump in the night. I have seen a variety of apparitions…from spectral mists and shadow people to full body forms that look as solid as the living. And I’m a veteran Scare-Actor (and it seems that all the attractions I’ve worked were actually haunted.) I’m also a local haunted-historian and story-teller. Besides being able to sense spirits and things, I attract them…in fact you might say…Dead people see me. If you want to take a walk on the weird side, come with me as I take you on your ghost adventure.
Hello and welcome! My name is Becca, it’s nice to meet you. I am a Florida native, grew up in Cape Coral and moved to Orlando in 2014 for school. I am currently a graduate student at the UCF, working on gaining my M.A. in public history. History belongs to everyone and I am dedicating my life to making the past accessible, interesting, and interactive for all! Working as a ghost ambassador is the perfect way to both accomplish this dream and combine my passions. I love studying how people live their lives, what legacies and energy live on after them, and how all these factors culminate to shape the present and the future. Personal experiences have made me a believer in the paranormal, but I like to keep an open mind in order to determine man-made creaks from ghostly presence. Come join me, and I will give you an exciting tour full of history and haunts!
Hello everyone my name is Mark. I grew up in a small town in Illinois and moved to the suburbs of Chicago in my late teens to pursue college.During that time I had interactions with transcendent entities that could not be explained. A little later in life, I followed my dream to move to the Central Florida area where I have been living for over 20 years. In that time I have been a chef, actor, salesperson for the attractions and currently in healthcare. I am an armature historian and collector of obscure facts.I have always been drawn to ghost stories and have tried to determine if it is folklore or something more substantial. Having had real experiences I have always looked for the facts of the event. My goal is to entertain, investigate, and educate my guests on the area and the unseen. Whatever remains of the facts must be the truth.
Hi! My name is Brent. I’m originally from New York. I am a US Army veteran with 22 years of service and now work as a Military Analyst. I have always enjoyed watching horror films as a kid which sparked my interest in the unknown. My interest in the paranormal began, like most, watching numerous paranormal shows on television and I was somewhat skeptical to what I was observing. So, in 2011 I started investigating on my own to decide if ghosts really existed. What I discovered was that investigating the paranormal takes time, patience, and extreme knowledge of the subject. I captured an amazing photograph and EVP that convinced me the spirit world does exist! This one experience alone has driven my passion to continue investigating and share my evidence and knowledge with others. I will never force my beliefs on anyone, yet I strive to provide the tools and information for one to form their own opinion. Orlando has proven to be rich in history, with amazing architecture, and filled with spirits of the past. I am super excited to be a guide with American Ghost Adventures to assist others in experiencing the paranormal, and more importantly, having fun!
Hello! My name is Karleena. I am originally from Seattle WA. I moved to Orlando in 2017 and learned that this is truly such a interesting city! I have always had a curiosity about the paranormal since I was a child. I loved the mystery of the unknown and the possibility of getting answers. I have had one personal experience in WA state, but thanks to my time with American Ghost Adventures, I am now a full believer. Ghosts are people who want to be heard and properly acknowledged. I am more than thrilled to educate you about the weird, interesting and sometimes sad history of beautiful Orlando. You might even be lucky enough to get the chance to interact with a few of my dearly departed friends!
Behind The Scenes:
Investigator and Photographer
Hello! My name is Lester.I was born in Oregon and moved to Singapore in 2003. I decided to come back to the States in 2012 and currently stay between New York and Orlando managing properties. I have a background in Marine Biology and Environmental Science and have owned companies ranging from restaurants to medical offices to horse racing stables. Watching shows on TV about the paranormal made me want to explore further and see if anything that happened on those shows could possibly be true or if they were just staged. I always feel first hand experience is the best way to judge something for yourself and I joined American Ghost Adventures to try and formulate my own answers. So far, I have come across things that could be easily debunked with scientific explanations. But it’s those things I have witnessed with my own eyes which have no explanation that intrigue me. I always try to take a scientific approach to deciphering each experience and i can honestly tell you not everything can be, at least not with our current understanding of science. Join us on a tour/investigation, see for yourself and draw your own conclusions. Maybe you too, will get to experience something you can’t explain.
Social Media Specialist/Researcher
Hi, my name is MiChel. When I was younger I wasn’t able to separate Hollywood paranormal from what’s actually out there, and I was always very scared of it. As I got older, I did some research and investigating into the actual paranormal and became very interested in what I found. There’s a whole other world out there if you’re willing to open up and let yourself experience it. You don’t need fancy equipment or a guide, just trust your instincts, chances are, you have already experienced the paranormal. I pursued my chance to work with American Ghost Adventures so that I could further my experience and knowledge, and I hope to share what I learn with anyone who is willing to listen.

Greetings! My name is Darren, and I am a corporate lawyer by day and a paranormal enthusiast at “night.” Prior to practicing law, I had the opportunity to be a theme park VIP tour guide, entertainment manager, and even acted in a murder mystery show. I call both Boston and Hilton Head Island, SC “home,” but I have been mostly in Orlando since 1994. Personally, I have always been drawn to the stories and mystery associated with the paranormal. For many of us, the “jury is still out” on the afterlife and whether spirits may walk amongst us. As a lawyer, I am skilled at exploring both sides of any “argument” and seeking to find the truth. Maybe we will encounter something unique that has a logical, scientific explanation, but maybe we’ll experience that awesome moment where even the most skeptical among us has no explanation for what we shared. Either way – I may just challenge your thinking! Allow me to be your guide and investigator as we embark on an entertaining, informative, and scientific journey that might just provide you with some evidence
