Erik Bard On The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch

Skinwalker Ranch in Gusher, Utah, has been home to paranormal activity for decades. In fact, it’s been over two centuries since locals have reported a plethora of supernatural occurrences such as UFO sightings to even cattle mutilations. So, to study these strange and unexplainable phenomena, Brandon Fugal bought the ranch in 2016 and hired Erik Bard as the Principal Investigator and Chief Scientist.

As seen in The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch, Erik uses his decades of experience as a scientist to make sense of the weird findings. And he does that so by installing a cutting-edge surveillance system such as ground-penetrating radar that constantly monitors the entire property.

Exploring alongside him are astrophysicist, aerospace engineer, and optical scientist Dr. Travis Taylor, ranch superintendent Thomas Winterton, and Chief Security Officer Bryant “Dragon” Arnold.

The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch season 4 premiered on April 18, 2023, and Erik had already graced over 17 episodes until then.

From August 2011 to Aug 2013, Erik then worked at Motion Sciences as its Chief Science Officer researching the area of propulsive and energetic technologies involving heavily instrumented, energetically rotating bodies, laser interferometry, and polarization studies. 

In between, Erik also founded his company ML3 Scientific in May 2012 with a focus on the development of advantageously novel components for use in X-ray analytic systems. His effort had mainly to do with the development of ultra-thin film-based X-ray transmission windows.

Thereafter, he worked as an Independent Physics Consultant for CJ’s Toybox (2014 – 2015) and MicroRay, LLC. (2015), before finally becoming the VP of Engineering at Axcend Corp (a job he held for just 5 months).
