About

My name is Pietro Cruz. I was born and raised in a small town in Michigan where I had to overcome many obstacles while growing up because I was smaller than most kids and because of the neurological disability Cerebral Palsy. I was accepted to Western Michigan University (GO BRONCOS!) where I paid my way through school and graduated with a BA in Anthropology in 2007. After graduating I took my savings, roughly $1500, and traveled 1,300 miles to Austin despite having no job prospects or a place to live. At one point I had $2 in my bank account with no official job. I was able to find side jobs and scrape together what was needed to stay afloat.  At one point in late 2013 I was able to get stabilized and in June of 2014, I met a gorgeous, funny woman who would become my wife at my favorite bar, BD O’Reilly’s in downtown Austin. I proposed ten months later and we married in May of 2016. Through the hopes and dreams we had for each other and with immense support of my loving wife, I started Godfather Verdict LLC. I started this company to share our passion for movies, restaurants and video games with everyone.

Godfather Verdict is based in Austin, Texas.  We want to bring back new and forgotten movies and video games to the attention of the public. Entertainment is our passion and we want to share that passion with all of you.
