Adam Berry is an actor, singer, and paranormal investigator. In 2006, Adam's interest in the paranormal peaked when he experienced some strange supernatural activity in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He had experienced ghostly encounters as a child but having these encounters as an adult turned Adam's slight interest in paranormal investigating into a passion. In early 2010, Adam was blessed with the opportunity to put his investigative skills to the test on Syfy's reality series, Ghost Hunters Academy, where hopefuls competed for the chance to become the next member of the TAPS team. Adam was the last man standing, beating out seven other cadets for a spot, and he is currently an active member of the team.
