Historian / Tech Assistant / Web Assistant / Investigator

     I grew up in Vansant/Grundy, Virginia and graduated high school in 2000. I then graduated from Southwest Virginia Community College in 2002 with an Associate's degree in General Studies. I am currently working on finishing my B.A. in History.


     My family is very important to me. Some of my hobbies include playing online games, reading fantasy and biography books, Geo-caching, fishing, camping, and writing. I am a huge history lover and love to know anything I can about the past. I love animals especially my Boston Terrier, Murdock.


     My feelings on the paranormal are subjective. What I see is what I believe. Someday I hope to have a very personal experience to solidify an acceptance of the unknown. Life is a mystery and I want to discover the afterlife possibility. I joined BDPS in November of 2009 and hopefully I can help to uncover the past events with the places we investigate.

Letter of apology Matt O'Quin

The following is the public letter I wish to be submitted onto the BDPS website

To whom it may concern:
Sometime in August of 2011 I visited an online chat room on the subjects of paranormal investigating and paranormal sciences. I logged onto the chat room with the username blackdiamonps and engaged in discussion with those present. I was logged into the particular chat room for an estimated time of about 10-15 minutes. During that chat room discussion I expressed my own personal opinions about the way certain famous paranormal investigators conduct their business and paranormal investigations. I was adamant in my opinions and dialogue about certain ways they conduct themselves and ways in which they operate. I in no way meant to misrepresent the Black Diamond Paranormal Society as a whole; I was merely stating my own personal opinions on matters that I think needs to be addressed in the paranormal world.  I made the mistake of logging into the chat room under said pseudonym (blackdiamonps) and should have logged into the chat room with a generic moniker. Unto the group I was expressing my opinions unto I apologize for engaging the debate in an unprofessional manner and apologize for using coarse language that some may take offense to.

Thus again I do apologize for misrepresenting the Black Diamond Paranormal Society and any affiliates they have.  I in no way intended to cause harm or disrespect to BDPS in which I myself am a member. My opinions should not have been expressed under the banner of the Black Diamond Paranormal Society.

In conclusion I reiterate that I am sorry for my actions and conduct. I will from this moment on disengage my opinionated nature to a level that is sufficient with BDPS, and only engage into debate in which I present myself in a professional and courteous manner under either my own name or a pseudonym.

Sincerely, Matthew O’Quin
