revitalized the PAPA organization
in 2004 by purchasing the rights to the brand, its associated World Championships title, and by running the first World Championships event after a six year period of darkness for competitive pinball.
When the decision to rebuild PAPA
was made, Kevin
physically carried all 450+ pinball machines on his
back from Chicago to PAPA Headquarters in Scott Township, and then achieved the wizard mode on each of them using nothing but psychic powers.
After carrying the load at PAPA
for several years, Kevin
now oversees all aspects of the organization from his
home in South Carolina.
In recent news, Kevin
has arranged for PAPA
to be absorbed by the Replay Foundation
, a non-profit dedicated to preserving pinball and enhancing its stature in the public eye.
