Host Jeff Teolis of Pinball Profile interviews a variety of people within the pinball community. Guests range from designers & programmers, players to collectors, artists to celebrities, and anyone connected to pinball.
The idea for Pinball Profile came while Jeff was sitting at PAPA waiting to play the next game and realizing that there were so many great pinball players and personalities right there. But it was too early to start recording that April of 2016, because there was a lot to learn before questions could be asked.
Fast forward to the fall of 2016. Jeff was covering the World Series in Cleveland and Chicago. Before Game 3 of the World Series, a trip to Stern Pinball was the inspiration to begin the podcast right there and then. No notes, no preparation. Just a fan with a love of pinball, and an opportunity to talk to some major pinball personalities including Steve Ritchie for the very first episode.
Currently, Jeff is at many pinball events as an announcer either on the broadcasts or emcee including Pinburgh for PapaPinball, INDISC, the Stern Pro Circuit Finals, the NYCPC and other major pinball events. In 2019-2020, he ran tournaments around the globe on his Pinball Profile World Tour. Jeff is married to his wife Ann, he is a father of three (Shayne, Carson, Brady), he is a radio broadcaster for over 25 years, and is an avid pinball competitor currently in the top 100 players in the world.
