"After spending 33 years in the subject of paranormal research I have, for the first time, been extremely challenged in his efforts to rationalising many incidents that took place during the filming of Phenomena Project working alongside Don Philips. My sceptisism has somewhat decreased due to witnessing numerous inexplicable events whilst in the company of Don. During my first 12 months working on the team I have experienced recorded verbal conversation with unknown sources, some may suggest are 'spirits'. At this moment in time I'm reluctant to use labels, however I will openly admit to witnessing such communication and analysing captured data of residual audible phenomena. Whilst working alongside Don Philips I have has also witnessed profound incidents of psychokinesis as well as other inexplicable capabilities, and my expression to witnessing loud verbal remarks coming straight out of the air was second to none".
Steve often refers to Don Philips as a catalyst. An individual with a unique gift. A gift that has left him at times... gobsmacked! Steve continues to work on the series as the principle parapsychologist and heads his team of field investigators with SEP. Don is attracting the attentions of other well known figures within both parapsychological and scientific circles, we will be meeting with them in 2016. These are very exciting times.
