Tell us about yourself:
Late 40’s father, loved Lego as a kid, rediscovered my passion during the pandemic, also a certified Lego Serious Play Facilitator (LSP).
How long have you been an AFOL (adult fan of LEGO):
I don’t know that I ever stopped loving Lego, although it’s not always been an active hobby. Really got back into it about 3 years ago.
How did your interest in the hobby develop:
Rekindled my love during the pandemic. Have quickly been taken by the Modular sets, have built one of my own thus far but intend to build more when time permits. Also enjoying many of the other adult-themed sets which speak to my interests, like Star Wars.
How did you find ParLUGment:
Brother-in-law told me about the FB group
What is your favourite theme:
Modular buildings, Star Wars, Harry Potter
What is your favourite aspect of the hobby:
It’s a toss up between building a pre-determined set to not only discover interesting new ways to build and add detail but also to discover any hidden secrets in the set, or creating something totally unique on my own, bringing a new idea to life or modifying something to make it my own.
What is your proudest accomplishment within the hobby:
It’s a toss up between completing my LSP training and being able to use it in my workplace, and creating my first modular building.
“One thing that still stands out to this day from my childhood is how I would build sets or original pieces, then stage them and take photographs. I recall hanging helicopters/planes/rockets from the ceiling with string/fishing line to make it look more real. There really is no limit of possibility with Lego. and there are amazing people out there, doing awesome works of art, creating prosthetics, or using sets to help calm kids getting an MRI for the first time. It really just amazes me the endless opportunity and creativity that exists with a ‘child’s toy.’ “
