Tell us about yourself:
I am just like a Leo; lively, caring and creative (or I like to think so…). And basically, a kid at heart.
How long have you been an AFOL (adult fan of LEGO):
My whole life! Started as a child until my teen years, then went through my dark ages, until reconnecting with LEGO about 4 years ago.
How did your interest in the hobby develop:
As my kids grew out of LEGO, I learned that I loved making my own LEGO MOCs and mosaics.
How did you find ParLUGment:
I live in the National Capital Region and a friend recommended it to me.
What is your favourite theme:
I love the LEGO Modular Buildings. I love their build, their height and their look. They go so well in my LEGO city.
What is your favourite aspect of the hobby:
I love seeing a tons of bricks/dots become art. I also love sharing and discussing this wonderful past time with other AFOLs.
What is your proudest accomplishment within the hobby:
My proudest achievement is the MOC of the “Cabana Bay” Hotel located in Florida. Although it is a small MOC, I think I was able to capture the hotel’s vibrant essence and colours.
Ever since I can remember, I have dreamed of having my very own LEGO room. And that dream became a reality about 2 years ago, right before the pandemic. These last two years, I have been able to create LEGO MOCs, habitats and wonderful mosaics in my own space without having to fight my family for dining room table space. I have also gotten to know so many people through the ParLUGment club and online via the LEGO Instagram community.
