I grew up in the late 70's and early 80's and always liked arcade games. I have a small collection at home of 14 arcade machines and 3 pinball tables currently. I built my first arcade machine in the late 90's, but I got more involved in the hobby when my son took an interest in playing. I work as an IT Manager and I have a long history in hardware and code writing. I still play or work on games most nights once the family is asleep, I am a night owl and I have never needed much sleep. These days I am in the garage until at least midnight on these nights restoring my 1969 Williams Seven Up EM pinball table.
