is a creature that has been sighted by countless witnesses
throughout the world. This elusive beast, also known as the
Sasquatch, the Yowie, the Skunk Ape, Yeti or Ape Man is yet
to be proven scientifically. However many scholars, researchers
and scientists have chosen to devote their lives to researching
the behaviour and habitats of this beast.
is said to stand about seven and half feet tall with thick
hair covering nearly the entire body- excluding the hands
An extreme stench usually accompanies the creatures as they
slowly travel through an eerily silent forest. Most reports
place the creatures alone, usually at the dead of night. The
only collectable evidence in areas where this animal has supposedly
been sighted are footprints. It is this piece of evidence
that has led to this animal most commonly being referred to

is the basis of your interest in this field?
When I was a child I was always interested in strange and unusual
subjects. I was extremely interested in dinosaurs as I'm sure
most kids are. When I was 9 years old the story of the Lake Worth
Monster hit the front page of the Ft. Worth Star Telegram. My
grandparents had a cabin cruiser boat on Eagle Mountain Lake which
was separated by a dam from Lake Worth. I had spent many a night
on that boat anchored out in the middle of Eagle Mountain Lake.
As you can guess, the many scenarios involving the creature ran
through my head. The story died down in November of 1969. The
next year I obtained a copy of John A. Keel's book "Strange
Creatures from Time & Space". It was very influential
to me. Of course, like probably everyone else in our group, I
saw the movie "The Legend of Boggy Creek". I saw it
in the theater and it made me think about the possibility that
Bigfoot was closer to me than I had previously thought.
you had a personal sighting or experience?
I have had a sighting of what I believe was a Bigfoot creature.
It occurred while driving back to Dallas from New Orleans on May
30, 1994. We were about 175 miles Northwest of New Orleans on
an unlit 2 lane highway approaching Alexandria, LA. There wasn't
a moon out and it was very dark. We were traveling at approximately
75 mph and it was approximately midnight. There was no shoulder
to the road and it dipped down into a small ditch on either side
of the road. It was about 25 to 30 feet to the wood line from
the road. About halfway to the wood line, a figure was visible
in the illumination of my headlights. It appeared to be about
7 foot tall, hairy and looked to be gray. It's back was towards
us and it was walking in the direction we were traveling, parallel
to the road. My wife, then girlfriend, and I looked at each other
and simultaneously said "Did you just see what I saw?".
I wanted to stop and go back, but she did not. I was driving an
Isuzu Amigo with the soft top rolled up, so I could see why she
wasn't in favor of this. It did become a topic of long discussion
for the remainder of the trip.
made you decide to join a research group and why did you choose
the Texas Bigfoot Research Center?
Like I said, I was curious about these kinds of things since childhood.
I made a point to watch any documentaries about anything that
was unexplained like UFO's and Cryptozoology in general. When
I got on the Internet in 1997, I started looking up websites that
dealt with this subject matter. I started buying books on eBay
about Bigfoot & Cryptozoology. I searched long and hard to
find a copy of John Keel's book that had such an impact on me.
In early 1999, I was on an email list and there was a message
from Luke Gross inquiring if there was anyone in North Texas that
was interested in researching Bigfoot. I jumped at the opportunity.
We formed the Texas Bigfoot Research Center in July of 1999. The
rest as they say is history.
do your family and friends think of your interest in Bigfoot?
I am very open about my passion for Bigfoot research. My family
is very supportive and has helped with the planning and execution
of our Texas Bigfoot Conference. I don't shy away from the subject.
Most of my friends are aware of what I do in my spare time and
are fairly supportive.
do you hope to accomplish by being a part of this group? What
is your ultimate goal in Bigfoot research?
My goal is to get undeniable video and photographic evidence of
this creature. I would also like to obtain a DNA sample that could
help to prove this creature's existence without harming it. I
don't have to prove it to myself- I've seen one. I would like
to have video or a photo that I could show my friends and family
to be able to validate my "hobby".
