You'd think with a name like mine, it wouldn't have taken more than sixty models to finally make an Italian landmark, but here we are! This one was probably the perfect choice in this case since I studied Brunelleschi's dome in school. Plus, I figured it would be nice to do something local to take with me to the Bricks in Florence Festival 2019 this November! So excited to meet a ton of new builders and see a bit of Tuscany while I'm at it!
I'm so thrilled to say that after nine straight years of exhibiting at Brickworld Chicago, and eight 'Best Small Building' nominations, I FINALLY won for Notre-Dame de Paris! I'm a little beyond words right now for also receiving the 'Judges Award' for the first time for Mount Rushmore! Completely blown away and so profoundly grateful for everyone's support along the way on this crazy journey!
SURPRISE - I'm in Copenhagen for LEGO World! Normally, I would have brought about sixty models with me, but I settled instead for the chance to sign sixty of the CPH Skyline set I designed, for sixty very deserving exhibitors of the Fan Zone. A huge thank-you to Jan Smed and Line Ann La Cour for making this Fan Zone surprise possible!
This past weekend was the second of three back-to-back BrickUniverse exhibitions. Here are some incredible photos of my gallery taken by the public attendees at the first show in Columbia, SC. (PC; Sean Rayford, Tavares Hanks and Columbia Post & Courier)
I exhibited my work at BrickUniverse in Dayton, OH this past weekend and will be heading to Knoxville, TN this coming weekend.
A huge thanks to JCC Chicago for having me take part in their Road Scholars summer program this year! We had two very successful events where I exhibited my North Magnificent Mile layout, gave presentations to the kids and their grandparents and then passed out small sets for a live build!
