Blue Apple Productions was founded in 2000 by Will Irwin and started with a single bounce house and magic shows. Blue Apple now has over 100 entertainment offerings including a multitude of bounce houses, interactive inflatables, obstacle courses, inflatable slides, mechanical bulls (sharks, surfboards and more), photo booths, a climbing wall, zip line, and so much more!

Your Team
Will Irwin

President & Master FunCrafter

Will’s been mixing business and pleasure since he was in high school!  He founded Blue Apple in his parent’s basement and grew it into the company it is today.  Although he’s the boss, you won’t see him out golfing (he’s not that great anyway).  Instead, he’s hard at work growing the business.  Don’t be surprised if you see him at your event—he believes every client is important and wants to ensure we deliver the best every time.

Jesse McCarthy

Event & Logistics Dynamo

Jesse keeps Blue Apple running smoothly!  He directly oversees our event teams to ensure we’re providing top-notch service at every event.  Whether it’s in the warehouse or out in the field assisting with events, Jesse gives 110% all the time.  He’s one of the hardest workers you’ll ever meet and a “give you the shirt off his back” kind of guy.  You’re in good hands with Jesse behind the scenes.  Legend has it that he’s single-handedly lifted our heaviest inflatable off the ground with his bare hands.

Sam Leon

Event & Logistics MasterMind

Who, what, when, where, and how?  Sam is the linchpin of day-to-day operations at Blue Apple and not only knows the answers to all those questions, she’s the one coming up with the answers.  She carefully and methodically crafts our operations schedules and makes sure that each and every event detail is correct so that your event will be a success!  From reconfirming plans during advance calls to routing vehicles and scheduling our team members and everything in between, Sam focuses on the details to ensure we not only meet, but exceed expectations on event day.

Steve Korchynsky

Client Relationship Ambassador

Trying to plan something fun?  Steve’s your guy!  He’d love to hear about your event and offer up ideas on how to make it memorable.  He’ll give you all the information you need and work with you to get something set on the calendar.  He’s managed Blue Apple’s operations in the past so he knows our product set inside and out—and he’s always working on new and exciting entertainment ideas.  Give him a call today!

Connor Hughson

Business Operations Orchestrator

Somebody’s got to be at the office when everyone else is out partying all the time, right?  Connor handles all the back-end work that goes into each and every event.  She’s the one keeping the business in order—crossing the Ts and dotting the Is.  On top of that she does a little bit of everything, and in this industry there’s a lot of things that can pop up on a moment’s notice and she’s there to hop on it.  

Jason Kuberka

Equipment & Training Maestro

Once called Blue Apple’s human Swiss Army Knife, Jason possesses all the tools to make your event a success.  He handles all things equipment—you could call him a techie, but even beyond technology, he’s a go-to for all sorts of things at Blue Apple.  He does both behind the scenes work making preparations for events as well as leading our teams in the field.  Pretty sure he doesn’t sleep!
