Schuler is the founder of P.I.O.T. He never bore witness to a paranormal encounter until he went looking for it. Schuler oversees all investigations & supports the team in all efforts & events. Along with being the founder of the team, Schuler gets in the dirt with his team by familiarizing himself with new equipment, research, & anything else that the team must learn. The paranormal has been a passion for him since 2011 when he first organized the team. Schuler created the team as a community organization, so that they could help those truly in need. Schuler understands true fear involving the paranormal & how real it is. Schuler also values the unknown & the treasures of knowledge that it may hold.
He is at times a huge skeptic; as he says "Seeing is believing." & "Evidence is everything!" These sayings hold strong with him. However, Schuler is extremely spiritual. He prays before, during, & after every paranormal investigation. He has not always held prayer & positive spiritualism close to him; at least not until the investigations of Central State Hospital. He believes not only keeping himself safe, but his entire team, & anyone involved with P.I.O.T. Schuler is a truly down to Earth person & loves meeting new people. He has said that the best part of being a paranormal investigator is meeting all of the new people & helping them with their distress. He is driven by a passion, & that passion is helping those in need from the unknown.
Nathanial assisted with the 2017 investigation of the "Indianapolis Public Library" as a guest investigator. He’s worked with his passion for "Public Service" for many years, which is what led him to meeting P.I.O.T. Nathanial is very passionate in his work and likes to make sure it is done correctly and efficiently. Nathanial sees to the matters of proper communication between our clients, paranormal teams, researchers/specialists, & other outside contacts. Over the years Nathanial has picked up the passion of photography & assists with all photos taken during investigations or submitted by clients. With such skills & ethical strengths, he has helped drive the team to communicate successfully & produce accurate results.
Nathanial officially joined our team to work the paranormal field in 2017. Since joining P.I.O.T., he has been very open to learning the passion of how things are conducted. Nathanial's passion for his personal work makes it all the easier to adapt to a paranormal team concept. During his time at the "Public Library" he’s become very educated in the history of the building and retains that knowledge. This knowledge has proven to be very beneficial towards future investigations & events. Nathanial is built on a strong foundation of data gathering & constructive understanding. Which in full has undoubtedly aided the team in many ways.
Ryan joined P.I.O.T. in 2018 & is the team's biggest skeptic. Being a proud skeptic is not a bad thing & has honestly proven to be quite helpful during intense situations. While Ryan is keeping everyone in a calm state of logical thinking he has also proven himself as a valuable investigator & equipment tech. Ryan works alongside Nathanial when dealing with photos & alongside Schuler with videos & audio. Ryan hasn't had many encounters with the paranormal, but is logically open to the possibility of a spiritual counterpart.
With Ryan not having many experiences with the paranormal it makes perfect sense for him to be so skeptical on the subject. Ryan has proven very effective when dealing with odd accounts of sounds & sensations. It's not always about having the newest & best equipment that makes a good paranormal team, but having the most center-minded & understanding investigators. Ryan has proven time & time again that his open mindedness & skepticism has accurate & realistic conclusions.
