Vince Ynzunza is a native of Washington State and has possessed a lifelong fascination with the paranormal and eclectic from growing up with The X-Files and Unsolved Mysteries. He started making videos for fun while he was attending The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA.
Upon attending the McMenamin’s UFO Festival in McMinnville, OR in the Spring of 2014, he and his best friend, Alexandra Sullivan, conceived of the idea to create their own paranormal themed video series, Pacific NorthWEIRD.
Vince is the primary director and writer of Pacific NorthWEIRD, which chronicles the strange, paranormal, and unusual happenings of the Cascadian region known as the Pacific Northwest – covering everything from the region’s rich UFO history to its unofficial cryptid mascot, Sasquatch as well as a bevy of topics in between such as eccentric local celebrities, strange landmarks, and paranormal activity.
The show maintains a necessary balance between documentary and comedy and seeks to capture the magic of the Northwest in a fun, informative, and exciting way. It is currently hosted on its YouTube channel – youtube.com/pacificnorthweird.
