About Us

“Big Fat” is an expression Jean Black has always used to describe things that are larger than life; things that average adjectives simply can’t describe. That is why many of her website names start with “My Big Fat”.

Jean had a busy career in the entertainment industry, culminating in a decade at The Walt Disney Company, where she was a writer and executive in charge of promotional on-air productions at The Disney Channel, as well as a writer for Walt Disney Art Classics, The Disney Catalog, and Disney Auctions. In 2000, during her time with Disney Auctions, a part of Disney.com, Jean finally began to pursue her interest in online graphics. Her interest became a passion, and after teaching herself Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, html, and basic web design, Jean launched her first site, mybigfatmoviereviews.com in 2007, quickly followed by mybigfatdvdreviews.com and mybigtheaterreviews.com.

In 2009, Jean began to expand her web design business with clients such as Great Destinations (travel), Critter Cuts (dog grooming), Haute Diggity Dog (designer dog collars), and more, carving a niche by building Big Fat Sites for small businesses.

Jean has been a print/online film critic since 2005, writing for Senior Spectrum in Sacramento, The Roseville Press Tribune, The Carmichael Times, American River Messenger, The Placer Mercury, and the Natomas Messenger.

Like everyone who ever worked in the entertainment industry, she has written several unproduced screenplays, and has a lovely stack of encouraging rejection letters from virtually every major motion picture studio.
