Growing up in Northern Michigan, Pinball has been a love of mine since the age of 5. In the days of the arcades in the 80’s.. I liked Video Games, but I LOVED Pinball. Three decades later things haven’t changed. What started out as just single pinball game in my basement soon exploded into over 40! Having that many games it became a necessity to learn how restore, repair and maintain them. I realized I had a passion for repairing these fantastic machines and have them playing to their best. I also realized how much fun and enjoyment they brought to others… whether it be a man-cave, at a business or just great family fun! I figured I could put my knowledge and skills to work to help keep the pinball machines in Michigan playing and running well and GR pinball was born.   It’s my pleasure to be able to help in keeping these wonderful pieces of family fun and Americana alive and well.  I’m a proud graduate of Grand Valley State University with 3 degrees, a dog and cat dad, collector of vintage gaming consoles and lover of everything outdoors – and a good laugh or chuckle is always the order of the day!

Hope to see you soon and thanks for stopping in – I look forward to serving you.
