LEGO interests:
My parents got me started with 395: Build-N-Store Chest when I was 4, but my earliest LEGO memory is of 6387 Coastal Rescue Base. I specifically remember my grandma buying 6939 Saucer Centurion for me when I broke my leg playing soccer.

I really love LEGO for the creative development it provided me as a child. Some of my best traits were developed through building.

At my earliest I was a Town enthusiast. I had the entire police line from 1993-1995. I firmly believe the early 1990s before juniorization began in 1997 were LEGOs best years. I'm so glad The Lego Group recovered from mistakes made in the late 1990s and we're in an era almost as golden as those early 1990s.

In 1996 with the Explorien theme in Space I transitioned to space oriented building. In those days of geocities websites, the 12 year old me had an entire "Explorien Command" backstory, models, and website. Collaborating with similar young builders was epic. LUGNET was our hub. I've never felt community like that. Just for my own notes: Mladen Pejic, Mark Sandlin, Tony Hafner, Tim Courtney, Bram Lambrecht, Kenneth Tam, Trevor Pruden were fellow builders at the time. A man named Pat Hough once listed me as one of his inspirational mentors: http://news.lugnet.com/space/?n=6552 . My most lasting impact was probably my Warthog: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=23338 .

I did a lot with Technic and Mindstorms during those years too. Mostly remote controlled 4x4s.

I entered a dark age around 2002 as I finished high school.

Around 2008 I found LEGO again. I don't have the time or space for much, but I do manage to collect the Modular Buildings, Collectible Minifigures, Winter Village, and other outstanding sets.

In the future I hope to be a homeowner with a dedicated LEGO room. I don't have kids, but someday I hope to strengthen my relationship with them through building.
