In the 1999 book, Cryptozoology A to Z written by Loren Coleman and Jerome Clark, Dave Walsh describes his early interests in cryptozoology, psychology, philosophy and the paranormal as being the result of spending far too much time in his own company. After a brief, and what he describes as a far too eventful, academic career, Walsh worked as an internet communication specialist and website designer, part time journalist and occasional gentleman adventure.
Dave Walsh is a founding member and Chair of the Internet department at the Charles Fort Institute, a resource for scholarship and research in the understanding of strange experiences and anomalous phenomena. In 1998, Walsh traveled to Norway to take part in a G.U.S.T., Global Underwater Search Team, expedition investigating claims of a lake monster in Lake Seljord, Telemark. Walsh’s accounts of this rather turbulent expedition can be read online at his website, www.blather.com.
