Seal Beach, California
I've worked on writing on spec in my down time, with a few sitcoms (one of them won an honorable mention in a contest), and the last couple of years working on spec projects for themed attractions (one got to the finalist level in a contest). All are available to view at www.writesafe.com in the gallery under TV and Art [site has been under construction, sorry]. I also had the great privilege of being on the writing team for the THEA awards in 2008.
A great experience for me was taking the on-line class that used to be called Theme Park Engineering class, and is now called Imagineering class at imagineeringclass.com which I highly recommend to anyone looking into being a part of this industry. It covers the whole process, creatively and technically, that goes into making an attraction and is at a level that anyone can understand (and is extremely affordable).
Also, I worked at Disneyland while I was in college, the Disneyland Hotel doing AV for a while, and have worked on many ABC/Disney shows over the years (they truly are always the most fun and best atmosphere to be around).
