Before we get into my story, here's my Flickr page if you want to see some higher resolution pics of my creations. Anyway, now on to my boring, ahem... amazing tale!
I'm an adult Lego fan and I've loved Lego my whole life. Many of my happiest memories as a kid are playing with my Lego.
On this page I share both my own, and creations by my friend Keith whose Lego story roughly parallels mine:
We had a steady childhood buildup (including lots of mega bloks… shhhh don’t mind that) to a peak in high school then a sharp decline through the busy years of college and new jobs until we discovered LDD in our mid twenties. Now we’ve met our thirties and our interest in designing Lego MOCs has continued to rise. In 2013 I had the fortune to buy a house and reunite with my physical lego collection, but I didn't have a place to build until I set up an organized work space in my office in 2015. Thus I began to build MOCs in the real and purchase (to my extremely supportive wife’s bewilderment) more and more parts and sets. Since that time I've completely taken over the office. I've also joined SeaLUG and started to attend local conventions like BrickCon, Bricks Cascade, and BrickCan.
An exciting development in recent years is that my brother Greg moved to Seattle as well. As kids we spent lots of time building legos together and as he's a lot younger I often helped him with his designs. We've had some fun making builds while watching movies and you may see his work pop up now and again!
Even more recently, Keith moved into a house of his own... so let's cross our fingers that he dives back into the old bricks with gusto.
It astounds me every day how much I have to learn about Lego. I have to thank you countless lego fans who take the time to build amazing creations and post them online for the entertainment and enlightenment of others!
