Meet the experts!

Cliff Barackman, Animal Planets, Finding Bigfoot
Cliff has been doing field research on sasquatches since 1994.  His expeditions have taken him to 46 states and five continents in search of evidence for relict hominoids worldwide.  As the evidence analyst on Animal Planet’s hit television show, Finding Bigfoot, Cliff has applied his skill and expertise to a variety of photographic, video, film, and sound evidence.  Cliff is especially familiar with the footprint and handprint evidence for sasquatches, and he is the curator for one of the largest collections of cast evidence in the world.  Cliff is also an accomplished musician and outdoorsman living a quiet life on the western slopes of Oregon’s Cascade Mountain range, deep in the heart of bigfoot country. 
Shane Corson, The Olympic Project
Born in Scotland, Shane moved to San Diego, CA when he was a teenager. Shane has always been an avid outdoorsman, adventurer at heart, and interested in discovering new things. Shane loves tracking, hiking, fishing, and testing his survivalist skills. In 1997, he started doing field research on the subject of bigfoot and spoke with eye witnesses who had possible encounters, primarily in the San Bernardino Mountains, Yosemite, and Northern California. Shane moved to Oregon in 2008 and continued his research in the Pacific Northwest. In 2011, his research became all too real to him when he had his own bigfoot encounter.

Shane’s passion and methodology, along with his ambitions of furthering the research of bigfoot, eventually led him to becoming a proud member of the Olympic Project.

For the past 2 ½ years, the Olympic Project has been studying an area in Western Washington where unique and unknown nests were found. These nests do not match any known nest in North America, but given their size and makeup, they do however resemble gorilla-like nests. In collaboration with Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, a professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University, they are having eDNA performed on soil samples that were taken from the nests, in hopes of discovering what created the nests.

Shane has also been involved with Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot, as well as Discovery Canada, and he co-hosts a very popular weekly podcast called Monster X Radio.

Shane has worked closely with Dr. Jeff Meldrum, also with The Olympic Project.  Although Dr. Meldrum cannot attend the event this year, he is the inspiration behind most bigfoot enthusiasts passion to find the truth.  As the foremost expert on the subject, Dr. Meldrum works with a team of dedicated researchers, investigators, biologists and trackers who are committed to documenting the existence of Sasquatch through science and education at The Olympic Project.

Guy Edwards, Brain Jar Media
Guy lives in Portland, Oregon and has dedicated his spare time to deliver bigfoot news with his popular blog Bigfoot Lunch Club. His own unique approach to Bigfoot is to champion three major disciplines; paleo-anthropology, primatology and statistical mathematics. He also owns Brain Jar Media.





Derek Randles, Olympic Project
Derek has been involved in bigfoot research for 29 years. His first encounter with bigfoot was in 1985 in the Olympic National Park in Washington State. Since then, Derek has worked with many researchers, scientists and wild life biologists along the way. In 1997 Derek was invited to join the North American Ape project with Jeff Meldrum and Ron Brown. In September of 2000 he was invited to join the BFRO and attend their first Bigfoot expedition in Skookum Meadows near Mt. Saint Helens. During that expedition, Derek was one of the three people who found and cast the Skookum impression. Derek owns and operates a wilderness guide service in Washington state.


Marc Myrsell,  Licensed land surveyor in Oregon and Washington
Given the professions entrenchment in historical evidence, Marc started investigating the evidence left behind on Pacific Northwest monster attacks in the forests surrounding us. He will be discussing the 1924 Ape Canyon incident and the exciting discovery of the cabin site where the sasquatch attack took place.




Todd and Diane Neiss
On a clear spring day, in Oregon’s temperate Coast Range, a Soldier found himself face to face with a legend. On April 3rd, 1993, while conducting explosives training with the 1249th Combat Engineers, Sergeant Todd Neiss observed three enormous bipedal creatures watching their convoy from across a ravine. Originally a skeptic, he was forced to accept what he was seeing with his own eyes.Since that fateful day, he has dedicated his life to proving the existence of these amazing creatures. With over 25 years of field investigations and large-scale expeditions, his reputation as a serious researcher has grown exponentially. He has been called upon for numerous public speaking engagements; as well as countless interviews and television appearances.

Together with his wife and fellow researcher, Diane Stocking Neiss, they have consolidated their research and formed the American Primate Conservancy; a non-profit science and educational foundation predicated on the discovery, knowledge, research, recognition and protection of these incredible beings.


Cindy Caddell, Event Organizer
Cindy is an award winning photographer with a bachelor of science degree in anthropology.  Her senior capstone was Native American Myths and Legends of Sasquatch and other Mysteries.  She has worked in the archeology field for the federal government, protecting and studying Native American sites in Oregon.  She is currently a BFRO investigator and expedition leader.  She is also a member of The Olympic Project and has worked with Les Stroud on Survivorman Bigfoot providing peer reviewed anthropology data.  Cindy was born in Arizona but raised in the Central Oregon area where she makes her home today.
