Guest Profile

Payton Lynch

As a child and young adult, Disney’s storytelling became an important part of my life, teaching me to engage audiences. In my career, I tell stories through the magic of Guest engagement as a Product Manager at The Walt Disney Company. 

I’ve been crafting stories for as long as I can remember, but in 2020 I decided to take the plunge and dedicate myself to writing my first book. 

My first book is inspired by my husband and his story as a 9/11 Surviving Child. His story is one of 3,000 stories (not including the 2,000 adult-age people who lost a parent that day and the countless others who have gone on to lose a parent due to 9/11 illnesses) that need to be told. I'm grateful to Jon and the many others I've interviewed thus far who have been so willing to share.
