Today @ 6:00 pm, I will be appearing on a cryptozoology/UFO panel (funny how folks always want to lump those two together)… as part of the Parafest event in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Other panel members include Eric Altman of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society and iconic researcher Stan Gordon who, has been investigating weird creatures and UFOs since 1969. The event is being held at the Sands Event Center and also features well-known ghost hunters from popular television shows, in addition to film actors including Danny Glover and cast members from the Walking Dead and various horror/sci fi productions. General admission tickets are $25 per day… with the event running through Sunday.
Ken has investigated reports of mysterious beasts around the world including Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Chupacabra, giant winged creatures and even werewolves. In addition to appearing in three episodes of the television series Monster Quest (History Channel), Ken is featured in the History Channel special The Real Wolfman, as well as Legend Hunters (Travel Channel/A&E), Paranatural (National Geographic), Ultimate Encounters (truTV) and William Shatner's Weird or What? (History Television). His credits include multiple appearances on Coast to Coast AM, major news broadcasts and Ireland’s Newstalk radio, as well as being featured in major books and in articles by the Associated Press, Houston Chronicle and Tampa Tribune. Ken is author of the book Big Bird: Modern Sightings of Flying Monsters, as well as the co-author of Monsters of Texas (with Nick Redfern) and has contributed to trade publications including Fate Magazine, Animals and Men, The Journal of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club and Bigfoot Times. He currently lectures and exhibits at events across America. Born on Friday the 13th of October, 1967 (exactly one week before the famous Patterson Bigfoot film was shot), Ken has traveled to twenty-six different countries on six continents and most of the United States. An avid adventurer, he has camped along the Amazon, explored the Galapagos, hiked the Australian Outback and has visited many ancient and mysterious sites, from Machu Pichu to Stonehenge.
