Doc has been a Ghostbusters fan and paranormal enthusiast from the very beginning, having watched the movie Ghostbusters well over 1000 times. And if you ask him who is responsible for the Carolina Ghostbusters he is quick to thank his ex-wife for leaving him the week before he got laid off so that he had no one to spend the amazing severance package he received, hence providing the available capital to build Ecto.

Doc splits his days between running his own company, Bathurst Industries, and as the Campus Director of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting’s Charlotte Campus.
