Steve Feldmann & Marie Feldmannova
Steve has been working in restaurants off and on since he was 15 (a wicked long time ago!). He holds an MBA from Northeastern University and a BA from Harvard University’s Extension School. His Czech is awful.
Marie, a native of Prague, Czech Republic, holds a BSN from the University of Massachusetts. She is currently working as a Clinical research nurse at MGH. She has a background in the arts and art history, and has many many many years experience in the food service industry. In her abundant spare time she enjoys reading, the Red Sox, traveling and Rambunctious Rumbles with Jack (see below).
Jack “Fenway” Feldmann
Mascot and all-around cute puppy
Jack is a Boston terrier. He is a HUGE Red Sox fan and was born during the pivotal ALDS Series against the Yankees. He enjoys his ball, other dogs, licking, and cuddling. Occasionally he barks like a duck. It’s very strange.
Charles Maxwell Feldmann
Charlie is a pure blooded pug and proud of it! Currently Charlie is the full-time Space Pug mascot at our sister shop Flying Saucer Pizza Company. His interests include chewing on grass, furniture, Jack’s toys, and Steve’s fingers. He also enjoys chasing Jack around the house and waking Steve & Marie up in the middle of the night. He snores. A lot.
Lou is a 3 year old French Bulldog mix from deep in the heart of Texas. He was rescued from a household that just didn’t appreciate his tremendous demeanor and so we decided to welcome him into our home. Since Charlie has been spending the majority of his mascot duties as the Space Pug at our sister shop (Flying Saucer) Louie has immediately begun his training under the tutulage of our Boston Terrier Jack!
Laura began at the Gulu as a waitress in graduate school recovering from her 10 years working in publishing. She immediately became at home and then the Gulu took over. Her daughter is very forgiving — you can spot her around the cafe from time to time. Make sure to say hi when you see her! She’d love to hear what you think.
I have a need for constant laughter & possess a ridiculous sense of humor…seriously, what you hear is often not what you would expect. Crayola, nature, family & friends are my passions. I have an wide open mind, love thunderstorms, & really, really, really like flip-flops. Knowing that my gypsy days were numbered, I made Salem my home with my family, and hope to stay here for a long while; or, at least until the I hear back from Santa about becoming a proper Christmas elf.

Arthur is a hardworking guy who works hard to play hard. He goes to school at Salem State finishing up his education and training in Theatre while also acting and directing plays and musicals.

Caitlyn is cooler than the other side of a pillow and at times is referred to as “the drunk Sheryl Crow.” She is working at the Gulu to save money towards her dream in life: to own a puppy petting zoo, where she will own every type of dog and let them run free on her multi-acred farm.
Cary is very excited to be working at the Gulu! She studied bookbinding at the North Bennet Street School in Boston and regular book reading at Harvard Extension School. She was a vegetarian for most of her life until a recent stint in North Carolina- now she enjoys eating animals as well as making books out of them! Cary has been re-thinking her life plan since the Mayan apocalypse didn’t pan out. Ask her about her French Bulldog, Bert!
Daniel Patey is from Rockport. He’s a coast guard veteran and has been cooking since his childhood. He really loves sailing, rockclimbing, and going to shows in his free time. Favorite author would have to be Kurt Vonnegut.
Danny grew up in Lynn, MA to great acclaim. He defeated the giants there and took a really long shower. Legend has it, after shedding his skin in Amherst, he endorsed bad art and squishy tofu to fund a secret plan to conquer the espresso machine.
He plots somewhere in Salem.
Food runner/ Buss girl
Elektra is a socially awkward teenager with a 45 year old Woody Allen personality. She enjoys puns and someday hopes to fulfill an unforeseen destiny through the many ironic coincidences that make up her life. This is her first job!
As a small child Emily would dress up as Sarah Conner and do push ups to get ripped for Judgement Day. That time is NOW!
Erin loves unicorns. She enjoys high stakes gambling in Chinatown in her spare time. She is saving up the money she makes at the Gulu to attend college as a puppetry major and become the Master of Puppets.
George is 28 years old and from Houston TX. He’s lived in the Northeast for the past 8 years and recently moved to Salem. His favorite hobbies are playing video games (He LOVES video games!!!) and playing the guitar.
Once while sailing around the world she found a short cut.
The police questioned her, only because they found her interesting.
In museums she is allowed to touch the art.
If she was to punch you in the face you would have to fight off the urge to thank her.
She’s definitely the most interesting girl on earth.
And she LOVES Gulu!
Some say he never blinks, and that he roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves… Some also say that his heart ticks like a watch, and that he’s confused by stairs… He has spent a spring break driving to Kansas and he once went to Germany for a weekend. He races bicycles and cars. He’s a self proclaimed beer snob and will happily discuss his mustache or the names of the origin of various styles of beers such as Russian Imperial Stout or India Pale ale….
I’m a South Shore transplant. I love my husband, my cat, and Bruce Springsteen. I identify mostly with two fictional characters, John McClane and Lenny Briscoe. I believe one can never wear too much denim.
Travel far. Be honest. Have fun. Stay away from Russian Waffle Houses.
Likes: creating, shouting into the void, speaking to the universe, violin, the prince of darkness, dreams and fantasy
Doesn’t like: things that aren’t the above
When I’m not doing dishes for the great Gulu Gulu Cafe, I’m either writing some zany space epics, listening to my favorite band, Muse, practicing with my band, Auburndale or studying to get into a good film school. I’m chill. I’m shy. And that’s that (I think?).
Lindsay is an avid writer and sandwich construction worker. She aspires to either be Anthony Bourdain or live in a house in Prague with all of the puppies. Her favorite band is Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and her favorite place in the world is Paros Island, Greece where she lived for three months. She studies creative writing at Endicott College, but is currently moving to Salem and is just trying to make it in this lovely town of witches and hipsters. She’s waiting to hit it big with her autobiography entitled “The Almost Perfect Crepe.” Her best friend an over-sized silly golden doodle.
Lucas is from Texas.
He likes coffee and sitting in chairs.
He has two cats.
He is afraid of salesmen and Hulk Hogan.
Cats are my best friends. I love my son Guy, listening to music, gardening, and knitting. Im always saying positive because the universe is always watching!
Margarita was born in post-Communist Georgia (really!) and has brought her Soviet beliefs to Gulu as hostess – free tables for all! Except for when they’re full, then you’ll have to hang out with her while you wait. When she’s not working weekends at the cafe, her part time job in IT for a medical research company, or attending college in Boston she enjoys walking the beach in Swampscott with her fellow Russian old lady brethren and reading books older than they are. You also won’t be able to get rid of her if you dare walk your dog by the cafe
Michelle is known amongst her friends as their real life version of Michael Scott. Her favorite aspects of life include the sun, good conversations, Spongebob, swimming, drinking coffee, acting and singing, and improv. Upside, inside out, she’s livin la vida loca.
“We’ll recline up high above the breeze
dart about, float on wind with ease.
Pass the days doing only as we please,
that’s what living is for.
Some things are meant to be, the clouds moving fast and free
the way it takes hold of me, no matter what I do.”
-”Some Things are Meant to Be”, Little Women
Favorite authors: Shakespeare and Jane Austen;
Favorite Places: London, UK and Portland, OR;
Life Goal: Never stop doing theatre;
Miscellaneous Information: I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, AKA the land of coffee and beer, so I have no choice but to be obsessed with both! (Also…I’m secretly British but don’t tell anyone…)

Also my cat has thumbs so that’s pretty cool, right?
