He is the author of Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen

As he describes it, “Bluefish is not a gopher service, an old boy’s network or a snobby bunch of party crashing showoffs. Please don’t call us to pick up your dry cleaning. Instead, we offer the highest level of personalized travel and entertainment-related services.”

Steve has helped people take a submarine to see the remains of the Titanic, get on stage and perform with Journey, attend Elton John’s Oscar party, and he even helped someone get married by the Pope at the Vatican and much more.
