Years as a pinball hobbyist: 5 Software of choice: Adobe Illustrator CS3, Photoshop CS3 Completed Artwork: EARTHSHAKER plastics set Warren first played pinball in the arcades of Calgary during the mid 70’s. He is a self-confessed drop target junkie, which may explain his soft spot for Gottlieb. At age 17 he bought his first game, Gottlieb’s “Jack in the Box” (lots of drops targets and pretty women!) and also joined the Pinball Owners Association which was then run by Gary Flower. In 1996 he began fulfilling his dream of having a basement full of pinball machines. Many games have come and gone but the ones that remain are from the late 70’s early 80’s with the exception of two WPC games. Warren finds that a sentimental attachment to the games tends to keep them around. The current lineup includes Barracora, Cosmic Gunfight, Black Hole, and The Shadow, amongst others. He is an active member of the Vancouver Regional Pinball Association (had the inaugural meeting at his house) and has finished second in the VRPA league too many times to be funny. Warren loves hockey (Go Canucks!) which is why Bobby Orr’s Power Play is so special to him. It was also the second electronic pinball he played back in 1978, after Eight Ball. He has an NOS Power Play playfield that he wants to share with the pinball community – working with CPR, he says, ‘will help me do my bit” for pinball. He has 2 great kids (6 & 9) and a very understanding wife. Warren runs in his spare time and is currently ranked the fastest 41 year old in Canada for 800 meters indoor (2008)!

When he decided he wanted to get a pinball machine, he naturally chose Space Shuttle as his first one. This pin even has a graphic of Hubble on the playfield. In addition to various pinball graphics projects, Ed has also developed a Williams CPU board tester, and has been successful in replicating the WPC CPU and A/V boards on an FPGA. This latter project is intended to replace the ASICs on these boards with modern substitutes.
