Tell us about Bubble Bar Boston. Bubble Bar Boston is a “Unique Mobile Bar Experience”, a fun and memorable vintage experience from which to enjoy your favorite libations run by myself and my oldest son, Alexander. When our bar trailer and vintage 1948 Dodge truck roll up to your party in the Boston area, people are going to talk and take pictures. It’s like a magnet. Our Bubble Bar will be the first thing your guests visit and where you will find them all at the end of the event. From custom curated cocktails, delectable grazing boards, bistro tables, vintage umbrellas, fresh fruit infused waters, and garnishes to die for. We set the scene for a night to remember.
About a year ago, we had an addition to our family, Petunia, our “Bubble Bike”. Petunia is a vintage inspired three wheeled tricycle serving chilled champagne and beer. Perfect for smaller events, more compact spaces or to have indoors.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? Follow your heart and your success will follow. Albeit with a tremendous amount of hard work and tenacity.
What is your favorite spot in Marblehead? Without a doubt the rocks by the lighthouse. Looking out across the ocean makes you feel like anything is possible. The ocean certainly soothes the soul.
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? When we lived in Malibu, we had access to the 21st Century Fox wardrobe department. I was able to try on all of Rose’s dresses from Titanic and Alexander used to visit and borrow items for all his Halloween costumes.

Tell us about Satori Sailing and why you started it. We started Satori Sailing five years ago because we saw a need for a high-quality public-access adult sailing school to help people achieve their sailing dreams. We also saw an opportunity to share the beauty of Salem Sound with residents and visitors through day sailing charters and other innovative sailing adventures.
What is the best piece of business advice you’ve ever received? Know your mission and why you do what you do. Be as impeccable and kind as you can and expect the same from your employees. Finally, don’t bite off more that you can chew in terms of growing the business.
What is your favorite spot in Marblehead, and why? That’s a tough one as there are so many. If I had to choose, the northeast bench on Fort Sewall where I can look over Salem Sound and dream of another sailing season!
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? I’m an ordained interfaith minister which allows me to officiate ceremonies and volunteer part-time as a spiritual care-provider. Perhaps one of these days, I’ll marry someone on board one of my boats!
