Business Ventures, Auctions, and Catering

I owned and operated Great Bay Gallery Banquet Facility in Somerworth NH,  which began as Great Bay Catering in Dover,NH 1989. After the recession that started in 2008, I finally decided to throw in the spatula, in 2010.  It’s a rough business, and 22 years was long enough. Lots of great memories.  I still do catering and events consulting on the side, but mostly for old customers whom I did business with for years.

I’ve always dabbled in antiques and bottles, so I got my Maine antique auctioneers license, and have been doing house cleanouts, and estate liquidations for people in the NH/ME Seacoast area. Web site is  You can reach me at is

Also, since 2112, I’ve been writing feature articles for Worthpoint online ( ),  on bottles and collectibles.

Long term, I am collaborating on a “reality style” cookbook, which recalls some wild but true stories from the “back of the house”,  and divulges what really happens behind those swinging doors to the kitchen.

Over the past two years, I’ve written a movie screenplay which no one, and I mean no one has seen yet. It is a full length adventure/scifi titled Sky Lake. When the time is right (soon),  I may dip my toe in that water.
