Thomas Winterton (birthday, March 5) is the superintendent of the infamous Skinwalker Ranch in the Uintah Basin of northern Utah. The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch cast member, like the others, is a close associate of the owner of the ranch, Brandon Fugal, and has also started his own company called Resonance Meditations, with his wife.
Aside from Resonance, he also founded Intermountain Economic Consulting, LLC, recently in January 2021 with an aim to create job opportunities with economic development in the Uintah Basin. He and his wife also founded a small chain of holiday homes in 2010, called the Winterton Suites, and remained its president until 2018. It's expanded to three different locations in Utah and North Dakota.
What's the Story With Winterton's Head Injury on the Ranch?
The most popular living testament of the strangeness of the ranch on the show probably is the condition that Winterton finds himself with. He has a condition in his head that sometimes recurs when on the ranch. It's a reason they are too careful when they do something that could have unexplained repercussions. And he's discussed the story in the first episode of the show.

Winterton said that he was a skeptic before he worked on the ranch and before the horrific unexplained injury he endured a while back. Despite being told not to dig inside the ranch, he went forward with it anyway, and a couple of days later came on with what he called a "goose egg" on the back of his head.
Upon visiting the hospital and checking up, the condition had spread all over the back and top of his head, causing a protrusion of his scalp separating from the cranium. He stated that the doctors had no answer as to what caused it to happen. It was a painful experience that would come to haunt him later and even on the show (second episode) when they were out in the field experimenting and witnessing some of the oddities themselves.
