Who am I? Just another Pinhead...

A long story compressed to a few sentences. I had been collecting Arcade Video games and Pinball machines since 1995. My first Pinball was a Data East Simpsons. I owned about 125 games over the years. I started doing a series of videos based on a podcast I had done in the late 90s called "Pins and Vids". My friend Paul Kiefert has helped me make it a valuable piece of pinball history. In addition, Paul and I started pinballshirts.com and offer cool shirts by famous pinball artists like Python Anghelo.

In 2014 I decided it was time to call it quits. I sold off all but a few of my games and change what I'm doing with my life. It's been fun mostly. I'm glad I've had the chance to meet and become friends with so many people over the years.

It's really hard to get out of this hobby. I am building a game on my own (Sexy Girl) and working on a couple of other pin restores. And if you notice that some of the pins in my past are repeated, that's because I've owned multiples. Yes, Three Black Holes and Five Strikes and Spares. I promise, this last Strikes and Spares IS the last one.

In 2016 I am TAKING BACK my hobby.  I spent over a year selling another guy's games for him and I have just gotten to the point where I can not do that anymore.  So I'm restoring the games I have and rebuilding the collection.  First up is a new cabinet for Bride of Pinbot 2.0.  Next is Strikes and Spares and maybe Police Force at the same time.

My other hobby is 16mm Film collecting.

I noticed that RGP was getting pretty dull and I wondered where everyone went!

Yesss! The most beautiful female that ever lived (IMHO). Seriously the best actress of her time.
