A little more detail about me.
I’m an avid book collector with over 1200 Disney and theme park books in my personal collection. I bought my first Disney park-related book in 1994 while at the Magic Kingdom and I’ve collected everything I can get my hands on since then. My specialty is Walt Disney World history, but I will collect (and read) books on amusement parks, Disney social discourse, biographies, animation and most anything with a connection to Disney.
I’ve been writing about the Disney Company since 2007. From 2011-2013, I wrote two weekly columns at Mice Chat that focused on Walt Disney World history and reviews (books, movies and more). Mice Chat is one of the world’s largest fan-based websites about Disney. UPDATE: I’ve rejoined Mice Chat writing and editing columns about the Orlando-based parks.
I’ve also branched out into other realms of themed entertainment by covering regional parks, like Dollywood and Carowinds.
In 2016, I jumped into YouTube, sharing videos about Disney parks, theme park history, Disney books and my visits to so many other amusement parks in the area.
In 2018, I accepted a position in the Central Florida area, which means I am an annual pass holder to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens Tampa and Fun Spot USA!

I’m also good friends with Zachary, who might or might not be devastatingly handsome.
