Ryan and Gabby – Victoria
Occupational therapist Gabby incorporates Lego into her work, and she was part of a course that used Lego play to help adults with mental health issues communicate with her. She played with Lego as a kid with her brothers but never owned her own sets, as “back then Lego wasn’t really aimed at girls”. Ryan like many adults had a hiatus from playing Lego but found his passion again in 2008, throwing himself into Lego particularly in the last four years.
Owen and Scott – Western Australia
Owen and Scott have been best friends since high school and say their Lego skills compliment each other perfectly. As an engineer, Owen is no stranger to building something out of nothing. Scott is an electrician and says the friends became obsessed with Lego after visiting a Lego store in Amsterdam.
Michael and Harrison – NSW/ACT
Uni friends from Canberra, Michael is now a physiotherapist and incorporates Lego into the therapy he does with his patients. Harrison is a PhD candidate in chemistry and loves "how you can start with a seemingly random array of pieces and somehow, following the perfect sequence, form an amazing piece of art.”
Amy and Dawei – Victoria
Dawei, an auditor, and content creator Amy together created the YouTube channel FloxyBloxie where they review Lego together. Dawei has spent tens of thousands of dollars on Lego since getting back into it in a big way just a year ago. Collectible Minifigs are Amy’s favourite.
David and Gus – Victoria
Gus is an engineer and applied to be on Lego Masters because he knew it was the perfect opportunity to challenge his creativity. Project Manager David has only been living in Australia since 2015. He grew up in Colombia and his family still live there.
Atlanta and Jeff – South Australia
Together, Atlanta and Jeff own several thousand dollars worth of Lego and spend about 10-15 hours a week engrossed in their builds.
