"Dizney Coast to Coast" producer and host, Jeff DePaoli, grew up in Woburn, Massachusetts and has had an obsession with the entertainment industry from a very early age. It started as a desire to create special effects for George Lucas and Steven Spielberg but quickly expanded into various areas of the entertainment industry. Jeff's obsession with Disney began as a child visiting Walt Disney World and quickly recognizing and studying the genius of Walt Disney. He went on to graduate from Emerson College in Boston with a B.F.A. in the Performing Arts. After developing a deep love for live theatre, Jeff worked in several different roles at the well-respected regional theatre, North Shore Music Theatre, in Beverly, Massachusetts. He could have been seen building
props, working as run crew, operating a spotlight, appearing on stage or in numerous other roles at the theatre-in-the-round. In recent years, Jeff began working as a voiceover artist and landed a gig as host of the official Alexa Disney Trivia game on the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition, as well as booking voiceover gigs with Universal Pictures, Netflix and more. Jeff's love and passion for themed entertainment experiences has landed him several writing gigs for various entertainment websites. He is currently writing a weekly column called "DePaoli on DeParks" for Attractions Magazine's website along with a seasonal column in their printed magazine. Jeff has always enjoyed hosting (hence the podcast) and was honored with the opportunity to host TEDx Culver City as well as numerous panels for the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and conventions. Jeff's undying love of Halloween has led him to a segment producer role for the Halloween and horror convention, Midsummer Scream. The first panel Jeff produced and moderated for this convention was a 25th anniversary celebration of the movie "Hocus Pocus" featuring a wide range of talent and cast that made this classic film. Jeff's love of podcasting has led him to create the DePodcast Network giving him the platform to produce and host more quality and entertaining podcasts. He also created the podcasting course "You Can Podcast Now" teaching new podcasters how to begin their journeys. In one of his more random roles, Jeff can be seen in the Clint Eastwood movie "Jersey Boys" as the stage manager of "The Ed Sullivan Show."
