Building a career out of my Dream Job

Ever since I was a little girl it was my dream to become a Master Model Builder. That dream became a reality in 2003 when I was hired as the first American Woman to work  in the Model Shop at LEGOLAND California. 

I spent the next 4 years creating everything from a life sized Pirate, a 4 foot ladybug, to my most famous model the miniland Las Vegas sign.

In 2007 I left the park and started Model Building Secrets and became the first Female Freelance LEGO Artist and Author in the World.  For the last 12 years I have worked for some of the world's top companies including Google, Warner Brothers, and 20th Century Fox creating custom models and mosaics  made from LEGO® elements 

I started my Etsy shop to combine my love of LEGO building and my love of jewelry making. I've since expanded with Wedding cake toppers, rose bouquets, and other creations.

I wrote two books on custom building.  My first book "How to Build a Round Ball with Square Bricks" shows readers the techniques and theory of how a Master Model Designer creates a LEGO ball.  My second book "Beyond the Ball" shows how to add color and design to your LEGO creations. Through these books I hope to teach the reader a new way of thinking about LEGO model building and design. 

I understand all aspects of LEGO building and design and would like to impart that knowledge on the next generation.
