I started in the pinball hobby in 1979 at the age of 9. At the time I enjoyed playing pinball games like Flash and Firepower. I saved enough money to buy my first game in 1985, a Stern Dracula pinball machine which I repaired and sold. This started my passion for buying more games to repair and sell.
In 1987 I was employed as a pinball and video game technician at Circus Pizza at Har Mar Mall. This was my dream job. In 1990 I was hired by Dahlco Music to be their lead pinball technician. I left Dahlco in 1994 to open Pinball Plus on Como Avenue in St Paul. This was my location for 8 years. Then I moved to a larger facility in South St Paul. In July of 2012 I closed the retail store due to a scarcity of machines, and to focus more on restorations, customizations and repairs.
I am looking forward to the next chapter in the world of pinball. In 1977 my sister Julie led me to my discovery and love for pinball. I am honoring her memory by founding www.JuliesPinball.com and supporting her legacy in fighting cancer among other great causes. The next step is to find an appropriate location to house my collection along with my supporters of this cause -John M Ross
