Michael has a background in the sciences, having studied and worked

years before pursuing a life long dream of being a police officer. He

Sports Medicine and the American Council on Exercise. His
background in the sciences includes research, testing and evaluation,
and the scientific method. His law enforcement training and
experience brings investigative know how and natural inquisitiveness.
Michael's own interests in the paranormal can be traced to his
childhood. "I was the kid in elementary school who was reading books
on ghosts and the paranormal" says Worden. His interest was fueled
by personal experiences he and many members of his family had at his
grandparents home, which is still haunted to this day.
In 2000 he began to work with noted author, historian and researcher
Linda Zimmermann. Zimmermann is the author of the Ghost
Investigator series of books. Working in small groups they have
investigated numerous locations including cemeteries, private homes,
and many other haunted locations. Their more notable locations
include Eastern State Penitentiary, the Lizzie Borden House and
Rolling Hills Sanatorium.
Worden is a proficient speaker and has given numerous lectures and
presentations on the paranormal. He is available to speak to your
group or organization on ghost hunting and the paranormal. Contact
