Steve has been collecting pinball machines over the last 9 years. Not only a shop monkey (pun intended), but also a competitive player and meticulous pinball shopper-outer. Steve finds his way into rat infested warehouse finds from time to time where he feels right at home. He participates in many of Rob’s wild projects to determine the true ‘fun factor’ in the madness. The rumors are true, Steve sleeps with 4 pinball machines in his room!
