About Jeff Birou

Jeff entered the magical world of Disney in 1989, as he experienced “The Little Mermaid” at the age of 4. His passion for Disney has only intensified as he’s gotten older, becoming a full-fledged Disney-phile, learning as much as he can about the theme parks, business decisions, and their animated films. Jeff lives in a suburb of Philadelphia and works as an academic advisor for a big research university. He blogs about pure nonsense at LEG+JCB. Can also be see on: @jcbftw and LEG+JCB.
