Theme Park Insider member since 1999, when he started the website.

About Robert: Hi, and welcome to Theme Park Insider! I am the site's founder and editor, as well as a former attractions host at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, where I worked at Pirates of the Caribbean, Tom Sawyer's Island, Country Bear Jamboree and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Since leaving Disney, I've worked as a reporter and Web editor for several major newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times and the Rocky Mountain News. In addition to editing Theme Park Insider, I have covered theme parks as a freelancer for Los Angeles Times and Orange County Register, and commented about theme parks as a guest on CNN, NPR, CBS, and the BBC.

I cover attraction openings around the world and welcome press releases and news tips from parks covered on the site, as well as from all Theme Park Insider readers. Please contact me via themeparkinsider@gmail.com.

You also can read more from me on TPI's Google Profile, Facebook page, Twitter account, or connect with me on Google+.
