    Outside of my obvious Lego obsession I play guitar (quite well if I can be so modest) , and until recently had a band. I've played most genres form jazz in a big band, to border-line metal with my group. Love progressive and classic rock to death, and I'm very fond of fusion. Favorite artists include Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, and Pat Metheney etc.

About Me

My name is Alex, I've been building with Lego since I was four, and after a brief dark age I am back at it with more ideas than ever. (Between college work and music, my other great passions)

Sirens-of-Titan is a novel by American writer and satirist Kurt Vonnegut. It is one of my all time favorites, it summarizes and satirizes the world we live in, and is a sci-fi adventure story all-in-one. I highly recommend it; it may change your life. :wink:

Back when I was a kid sets were scarce so I learned to improvise with a limited amount of bricks, which to this day leads me to inventing new uses for parts, minifigures and accessories.

My focus nowadays is MOCing; I attempt to put as much innovation, creativity and character into each MOC as I can possibly muster. If it is redundant, overdone and uncreative it is not worth doing. I believe minifigures add as much to a MOC as the actual scene itself, and so I try to match the best head/torso/accessories combination for each and every one. (Think of it as casting for mini actors)

My primary inspirations come from the world of sci-fi and fantasy books, movies and games. I prefer them to historic and reality-based creations, although a good MOC is a good MOC and I am not excluding them as a possibility for my building future.

Check out my MOCpages account or Flickr stream and stay tuned, as I am never out of ideas about what to build and my only constraint is time.

Thanks for reading! pirate_thumbup.gif
