It’s been an epic first week up in Brisbane for our new Wonders of the World exhibition! It was both exhilarating and slightly frightening to show all the models we’ve been working on for over a year to the public for the first time. But seeing the looks on the faces of the kids ( […]
I’m so excited to be able to finally share the news about the show we’ve been building towards for over a year! The world premiere of Wonders of the World will be in Brisbane from 23rd November. We will be there until the 14th Dec, after which we move onto our Australian tour heading to Sydney, […]
AMP commissioned me to make a model of their original building, an iconic curved office block at Sydney’s Circular Quay, and their proposed new building- a stunning modern building that’s all angled glass and gardens with a mall underneath it! You can see the old building well in this shot. The old AMP Building was […]
I’m back in sunny Townsville for the weekend! This time I’m with the Towers of Tomorrow exhibition me and my team built a few years ago, which includes some of the toughest models I’ve ever built of the many of the world’s tallest buildings! The exhibit also includes hundreds of thousands of bricks visitors can use to build their own model. So if you’re in North Queensland or heading there over the next few months, drop by and check them out!
Our latest Exhibition opens in Sydney shortly:
Sydney Living Museums presents Sydney Harbour Icons with LEGO® Bricks , a world premiere
exhibition at the Museum of Sydney from 7 November 2015.
For the first time ever you are welcome to come along and experience my complete collection of LEGO models, along with those of my colleagues the other LEGO Certified professionals who have each created a unique piece for the show.
Come and join in the fun as there is plenty of hands on activities where ill be getting you to help build some giant LEGO models and masterpieces.
Ive got a stack of new stuff never seen in public before so for your only chance to see them come along!
My first ever solo exhibition of LEGO works in conjunction with Sydney Living Museums.
Go along and see what our whole team spent many months building and working on.
This one pushed us to our limits with intricate details, complex curves and architectural geometry.
The exhibition celebrates tall and extraordinary buildings from Australia and Asia. Some are engineering head-turners while others are technical marvels.
(To be honest we are still not sure how we managed to pull off some of these buildings!)
Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks is on now at Museum of Sydney.

Its footy finals!
Head on down to the MYER emporium store in Melbourne to check out our latest mega model, the 70,000 brick LEGO MCG on grand final day.
There is lots of hidden gems in this model which took over 3 weeks to build.
Head over to my flickr Gallery for a closer look.
My own personal Mount Everest has now been climbed!
Unquestionably one of the hardest shapes to make out of LEGO bricks, my 75,000 brick version shows the famous Australian landmark off inside and out.
(I love doing my trademark cutaway treatment on the big models!)
For more detailed pictures check out my flickr.
Here’s my LEGO Melbourne star observation wheel. At just over 3m in diameter it is unquestionably the most difficult thing I have ever built.
It is fully motorised using LEGO power functions using just over 30,000 bricks.
The hardest part was the maths and process in doing a 7 pointed star held by a flying buttress while being powered.
(I have no idea if there are bigger LEGO wheels around, if there is I’m yet to see one)
The model is mounted on permanent display in the gift shop after you ride the observation wheel.
The kids and I are in this shot just for scale!
The Melbourne star opens tomorrow (the 23rd of December, check it out!)
