My passion for building began as a toddler when I followed my mother to work. She cleaned houses as a housekeeper and I couldn’t carry around too many toys. But I did have a vast set of LEGO bricks and K’nex. I was always interested in how the very simple plastic bricks and beams could result in such beautiful, complex, and sometimes functional structures.
I quickly discovered that building things was magical – it was magical because the final product could be so much greater than the sum of its parts. I could be looking at a mess of rectangular bricks in a plastic box, and a couple of hours later hold a replica of the death star in my hands. I felt I didn’t need any other toys, just LEGO bricks and K’nex. Why would I want my mother to buy me a replica toy car when I could fashion a monster truck ten times cooler in a couple of hours? I grew up quite poor, so the fact that my mother didn’t have to constantly spend money on toys was what appealed to her about my love for these pieces of ABS plastic.
