A love of LEGO, led me to being a toy designer. Then I was an illustrator for a while and nearly a Comic artist. For the moment, I'm "Daddy" when I'm not building LEGO things.
One of my first sets was a 918 for my fifth birthday, a love of (classic) space LEGO, began that day and continues still. I think LEGO also helped form my liking of science fiction and lead me to study design at university.
Star Wars brought me back to the hobby in '99 but the bug has really taken hold recently!
