I'm a French AFOL, I live in Nancy (North-East of France).
I went through 17 years of dark ages, and so did my lego collection. Now it's about 1/2 pre-1988 and 1/2 post 2008. One day I'll count the parts... One day... All I know is that there are about 100 000, and I think it's not that bad!
I'm a former architect/urban planner, but I am now teaching CAD and guitar. I'm also livening up Lego workshops with kids. Cool stuff!
I try to build in different styles and scales. To me,versatility is one of the numerous great qualities of Lego. But with time, I'm more often getting back to what got me into Lego as a kid : SPACE!
