Hi,

I run a Bricklink store called Gizmocom (www.gizmocom.co.uk) and do this pretty much full time at the moment after being made redundant mid 2011.

I am part of the Brickish Association in the UK (group of AFOLs) that put on various shows across the country and have been doing this for a number of years. I have recently started selling at the various shows as well with 'Brickends' so come along along and say 'Hello'!

I came of of my 'dark age' in 1997, but my interest (and spending!) really kicked in when the LEGO Star Wars line started 1n 1999.

I would class myself as a collector (read hoarder!) and have a huge collected of sets including being pretty much Star Wars complete. I have sets from all different themes and years and also love the gear ('tat'!) and obscure things like Modulex and the early wooden toys.

Modulex is a particular passion of mine and I was the main person behind adding in all the parts to the Bricklink database in 2009.

I seem to get less and less time to build my own models at the moment, but have a particular interest in Cafe Corner style buildings and have also done a few commercial build commissions including a 4 foot long London bus!
