My name is Marcus Dorsey!

I am a photographer from Kentucky, as well as a video producer with the Herald-Leader newspaper’s website, in Lexington, Kentucky.

Traveling and exploring parts of the world is something that I absolutely love doing as a hobby, ranging from a quick trip to a local amusement park to flying out to another country once in a blue moon.

I am the sole owner and founder of Water Slide Database, an ongoing project to visit and provide original photographs, videos, and reviews of as many water parks inside and outside of the United States as I can.

Water Slide Database began with the idea of tackling a niche area of the amusement park industry to bring awareness of its rapidly changing scene. The website, as well as the multitude of social media platforms (i.e. YouTube and Twitter) have gained attention from enthusiasts as well as industry professionals from around the world!

My hopes with Water Slide Database is not only to provide original content, but also inform viewers of the amazing stuff happening within the water park industry!

I hope you enjoy what is offered here, and I would love to hear from you about it!
