Last week we introduced you to Angelisa, a Master Model Builder who says landing the role was purely a matter of luck! This week, we continue our inside look at the personal journey of each of our Master Model Builders, in their own words.
I started building at about 8 or 9 years old, slowing down in my teen years but never stopping completely. But did I ever think my hobby would become my job? No!
I started working in the park in the education department for nearly a year. While I was interviewing for that position I shared models I had built and photos. When a position became available in the Model Shop, my Human Resources representative remembered my builds and found me to let me know a position had become available.
I continue to build at home creating robots and Mech (action figures) versus statues. Which means building with LEGO is my hobby and my career.
