HI! My name is Jay (aka Daddy to the cubs)! I’m currently in the Twin Cities metro area of Minnesota. I’ve lived here most of my life, with sprinklings of Sioux Falls, SD; Bettendorf/Davenport, IA; Chicago, IL; and Madison, WI. I’ve been in the Hospitality Industry (hotel management) for 14 years, after spending a few years working as a Rides Team Lead at Valleyfair.

I love Disney and all that it stands for! I’m formerly a travel agent and have attended Disneyland sales training. I’m a graduate of the Disney Institute program “Disney’s Approach to Quality Service” and have attended many tours and several of the special events Disney offers throughout the year (Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival, Star Wars Weekends, Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party.)

My favorite character is Tigger… A distant 2nd favorite is Kristoff from Frozen.

I am a Hufflepuff. I love corgis. I don’t eat seafood, peanuts, or mayonnaise (except in coleslaw) – the first 2 make me really sick, the last one just makes me gag. I also love lemonade and root beer.

I like to take pictures, and fucking love being outdoors (except during the winter.) Be sure to check out my photography at

I do the production and all the tech stuff for the show as well (editing, etc.)
