Joe Cetrone is a versatile individual, whose insatiable passions for creative expression, paranormal investigation and empathic observation, have inspired his life’s work: exploring the unknown and uncovering hidden truths.
Born in the historical Federal Hill neighborhood of Providence, RI, a frightening ghostly encounter at an impressionable young age set Joe on a quest for the truth; one that would alter and inform his life’s path. His passion to investigate the unseen realm accelerated, following a bizarre conversation with his father, only days prior to his death.
He studied under Keith Johnson (formerly of TAPS and the SyFy Channel's Ghost Hunters) and learned the scientific elements to research. From there, Joe's career elevated to a series of memorable accomplishments.
