Tobias Wayland is a passionate fortean who has been actively investigating the unusual since 2008; the first five years of his investigative career were spent as a MUFON field investigator, and following that he investigated independently.  Tobias then became head writer and editor of the Singular Fortean Society.  

Tobias’s years as an investigator have served him best by illustrating that when it comes to the anomalous, the preternatural, and the paranormal, any answers he’s found are still hopelessly outnumbered by questions.

Tobias is a frequent guest on various podcasts and radio shows; he has contributed to several books on the paranormal, and is often invited to speak numerous paranormal conferences and events.  He was also featured in the Small Town Monsters documentary “Terror in the Skies” for his work investigating Mothman sightings around Lake Michigan.

Joining Tobias at the Conference will be Emily Wayland.  

Emily is an ardent craftsperson and devoted monster enthusiast with degrees in both photography and design.  An accomplished artist, designer and photographer, Emily is responsible not only for the Singular Fortean Society’s aesthetic, but also the examination of any photographic or video evidence.  Emily’s art and designs have been featured in various paranormal art shows around the Minneapolis are, as well as in the “Chicago Mothman” portion of the Small Town Monsters documentary “Terror in the Skies”.  She and her husband Tobias have been involved with the Lake Michigan Mothman Investigation since its advent in the Spring of 2017, are are currently the only investigators to have conducted onsite investigations with witness interviews across multiple states.

Her lifelong love affair with monsters of all varieties has led her to pursue them in real life, and she hopes that her expertise in photography will help her capture one — at least on film.
