We're a group of individuals in Kansas City passionate about arcade games. We service and repair both vintage and modern games, helping ensure these classics play like new. We do this because first and foremost, we are collectors, too.
Starting his arcade collecting hobby almost nine years ago, his collection has grown to include both obscure and classic games alike. In his spare time, he was mentored by another technician, and began using those skills to repair his own games, then games for others. In addition to his experience with arcade games, he has a background in computer engineering which helps pinpoint the cause for failures. He started the 8-bit Associates as a way to provide arcade repair and consulting services, drawing on the unique backgrounds and knowledge of his partners. Not afraid to tackle any problem (including monitors), he's always looking forward to the next challenge!
